Kolkata: Team India’s administrative manager Sunil Subramaniam will not be called back from the West Indies by the Committee of Administrators (CoA), which is calling the shots in the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

According to a top source of ThePrint, who spoke late Wednesday, Subramaniam’s “apology-cum-explanation” over a photo-shoot controversy in Port of Spain has been “accepted” by CoA chairman Vinod Rai and his colleagues — Diana Edulji and Lt Gen (Retd) Ravi Thodge.

Subramaniam is said to have upset Indian diplomats in Trinidad when he was approached for permission for a government photo shoot, allegedly behaving rudely and denying permission.

The photo shoot had been requested by the Union government for a promotional, set to be aired in a few weeks.

That Subramaniam, who is on extension till the end of the tour of the West Indies, could be spared the embarrassment of being recalled, was reported by ThePrint earlier in the day.

A left-arm spinner who played for Tamil Nadu and Assam, Subramaniam used to be Ravichandran Ashwin’s personal coach.
