I am very disappointed with ban decision, says Shivendra

New Delhi: The ban on him has been reduced by a match but Indian forward Shivendra Singh today said even the lighter penalty amounts to “injustice” on him as he has been punished for no fault.

During India’s World Cup opener against Pakistan on Sunday, Shivendra’s stick hit rival player Fareed Ahmed who suffered a cut on his eye as a result.

Tournament Director Ken Read, while handing out the initial three-match suspension to Shivendra, said the act was “deliberate”.

The Indian player, who after the reduced ban will sit out of the matches against Australia and Spain, however, insisted that he had no intention to hurt the Pakistani player and it was just an accident.

“I am very disappointed with the decision. The penalty is injustice to me because I never committed the fault intentionally.
