The Jammu & Kashmir cricket team was missing some its top players in a Ranji match that it lost to Andhra Pradesh by an innings on Monday.
The reason behind their absence was not any injury or lack of form but a divide that has resulted in a feud between Kashmiri players and the team management.
According to a report, 12 Kashmiri players boycotted the round-four fixture against Andhra Pradesh, alleging biased selection.
J&K captain, Samiullah Beigh, has accused the team management of preferring players from Jammu region over Kashmir.
The players had earlier boycotted a practice session, a day after the team for the third match was announced protesting the bias in selection.
According to a report, the players had written to J&K Cricket Association, President, Dr Farooq Abdullah, regarding the matter. The players decided to give the match a skip after failing to get any response from association.
