In 1974, the Indian High Commissioner told captain Ajit Wadekar to “get out” after Indian cricketers arrived late for the official reception. Later, though, he called the team back and all seemed well. But there has been conjecture that he complained to the PM, and that was one reason behind Wadekar’s sacking after the disastrous tour.

It’s the Indian board now that’s at loggerheads with the high commission, which had been discussing since April 2011 a date to hold the official reception for the Indian team. Early July, the BCCI proposed July 18, and the Indian mission sent out invites in high commissioner Nalin Suri’s name to about 200 guests.
