    Nicky Boje contradicts Herschelle Gibbs

    A couple of days ago, Nicky Boje told 'The Indian Express'
    I don’t know what the Indian media is writing about me. I do not have to fear for anything. I was ready with the answers to the questionnaire sent by the Delhi Police and I had even readied my lawyer to accompany me. But I was dropped from the squad. That is the fact. I had even tied up with my lawyer and was all set to travel to India. It’s my misfortune, I couldn’t make it to the squad for the Champions Trophy.
    So what he's saying is that he didn't turn up to see the police simply because he wasn't selected. If he was really sincere about being forthright about his side of the argument, he should have turned up regardless of whether he was picked or not. Last I checked, there was no restriction on India granting visas for South African cricketers only if they were picked to represent the national side. I'm sure the South African cricket administration would have funded his trip.

    So it does seem like him being dropped and choosing to not be interrogated/examined by the Delhi police was stage-managed. Like I pointed out earlier, even before South Africa announced the ICC Champions Trophy squad, Herschelle Gibbs spilt more than a few beans about how he knew Boje wasn't going to be picked.
    Mmm-hmm. Ja, you see, Nicky's situation is slightly different, because I don't think he's going to be playing in India again; he's not going to be in the squad. So he doesn't really have much. for him it's more a case of clearing his name than anything else.
