The first time I wrote on KKR was on the multi-captaincy stuff and I had  mentioned that KKR might be controversy's new family, and as time has passed by this has turned into a reality.

The latest news doing the rounds comes from Ajaya Jadeja, who told a TV channel yesterday that he had first-hand information from an Indian player in the team who was racially discriminated against by the support staff of the team, led by former Aussie coach John Buchanan. 

The player was asked to come off the field and when he asked why, one of the KR coaches told him, 'You bloody Indian, you do what I ask you to do."

With all the controversies going around, this seems to be the most sensational and given ICC's firm stand on curbing out racism, don't be surprised if this turn out to be the beginning of another KKR saga.

Until next time,
