The Co-owner of Kings XI Punjab, Ness Wadia was convicted of a drug offense while skiing in Japan and has been sentenced to two years of imprisonment.
The Financial Times claimed,”Mr. Wadia spent a period in detention before his indictment on March 20 and an undisclosed period of detention before a court hearing. The Sapporo District Court handed him a two-year prison sentence, which was suspended for five years.”
After this scandal, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) might be in the danger of facing suspension.
