Ruling in cricket case next week

2013-09-26 00:00

THE Pietermaritzburg high court is expected to give a ruling next week in a case where a local father Pranesh Indrajith is attempting to have his son reinstated as captain of the first cricket team at St Charles College.

Indrajith alleged that his son, Pavishkar (now 18 years old) was unfairly demoted and accused the coach concerned of racism.

The school has opposed the application.

The school principal, Allen van Blerk, alleges the ultimate decision to “drop” the pupil was made by a school selection committee due to a deterioration in his form.

It’s alleged that between October 2 last year and January 12 this year he scored just 17 runs in seven games.

Judge Rashid Vahed has said he hopes to be able to give judgment next week.
