The 67-year-old, who was the manager of the Indian team in that tour, claimed that he had informed the issue to the then president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) N. Srinivasan, adding that he had appreciated the information but did not feel the need to make it public.

Dev further criticised the BCCI, saying that the India’s cricket governing body did not bother about these things as they had not reacted yet on the issue.

India had lost the match by an innings and 54 runs against England, and the match winded up in just three days.
