The selection committee of the Goa Cricket Association dropped skipper Swapnil Asnodkar for the next two Ranji matches following his controversial decision to agree to a draw against Maharashtra.

Young Keen Vaz was named as his replacement for the next two games, according to GCA secretary Prasad Phaterpekar.

After conceding a 38-run first innings lead, Goa bowled out Maharashtra for 91 in the second innings and needed 130 for an outright win in 19 overs.

However, the aggressive opener agreed to call off the match with Goa 18 for one in six overs.

Asnodkar's decision shocked his teammates and did not go down well with the administrators following which the GCA selection committee called for an immediate meeting and decided to drop him for the next two matches. — PTI
