Zeenews Sports Bureau

Rajasthan: Former Indian captain and Rajasthan Royals skipper Rahul Dravid has said that the issue about the participation of Sri Lankan players in Chennai is unfortunate.

In an interview to a leading English newspaper, Dravid said that the Government and the BCCI are looking into the matter and they will handle the issue in the best possible way.

He said that although the Royals have only one Lankan player, some other teams have more Sri Lankan players and they will have to change their strategies for the matches in Chennai.

Dravid also termed the assault on Jesse Ryder a `sad incident` and hoped he recovered soon.
