Media barred from Indian team’s hotel

The just-elected office bearers of the BCCI might have shown some interest in improving its relationship with the media, but the Indian cricket team management continued to keep its distance from the touring national media contingent with members of the fourth estate being banned from entering the hotel premises, here on Thursday.  

While in places like Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Hamilton, media people did have access to the hotel lobby, the authorities of the ‘Heritage Hotel’ here are very strict about even letting media people be within 100 metres of the premises. It is not known whether the authorities are issuing a diktat by the Indian team management, but there was an altercation between reporters of channels on Thursday when they were filming the proceedings of movements in the hotel from across the road.
