Team India manager Sunil Subramaniam on Wednesday was asked by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to return from the ongoing tour of the West Indies for allegedly misbehaving with the senior officials in the Caribbean Islands.

According to BCCI sources, Subramaniam has reportedly been asked to appear before BCCI CEO Rahul Johri in Mumbai for an explanation.

Subramaniam misbehaved with the Indian Foreign Service Officers when they reached him for a video shoot by the players for 'water conservation'.

The BCCI had asked the Indian High Commissions in Trinidad and Tobago to contact Subramaniam for the video, however, when an official tried to contact him, Subramanium refused to entertain the person.

Subramaniam has offered an unconditional apology to the Indian High Commission officials, citing stress as the reason for his misbehaviour. Team India manager further said that he was also sleep deprived when the incident occurred.

The BCCI officials were not too happy with his behaviour during the recently-concluded world cup too. 

Subramaniam was appointed as Team India's manager in 2017 for two years.
