The Kerala Cricket Association on Sunday decided to seek an explanation from speedster S Sreenath for his reported remarks against the association and its office bearers.

A decision to this effect was taken at the General body meeting of KCA here, which took the view that Sreesanth had exceeded his limits and violated the code of conduct, KCA Secretary T C Mathew told reporters.

"If Sreesanth repeats such things in future,the body has authorised the office bearers to take an appropriate action immediately," he said.

In an interview to media, Sreesanth had reportedly remarked that office bearers of KCA did not understand the sentiments of cricket players. Sreesanth was recently dropped from the captaincy of the Kerala Ranji Cricket Team.

Referring to other decisions taken at the meeting, Mathew said an Organising Committee for India-Australia ODI to be held in Kochi on October 17 has been constituted with Karthik Varma as General convenor and KCA President T R Bakakrishnan as Executive Chairman.

A tour programme has been fixed for the junior team to Sri Lanka. The team would play a number of matches, he said.

This year the senior Kerala team would play matches against Punjab senior teams before the start of Ranji trophy matches.

For the first time in Kerala's cricketing history, the association would host 26 matches including the ODI match between India and Australia, three Ranji trophy matches, four under-22 matches and three under-19 matches, he said.
