A "sad and hassled" Praveen Kumar refused to speak about the BCCI's suspension imposed on him, which bars the pacer from playing the inter-state Vijay Hazare Trophy matches for Uttar Pradesh.
"I do not want to talk to media about this ban. I am sad and hassled. Please do not disturb me. My silence would answer all the queries," Praveen told PTI when contacted over the phone.
"I will remain silent," the pacer responded when asked whether he actually abused the opposition team batsman as well as the umpires in a Corporate Trophy game recently.
