New Delhi:

The BCCI said it had not yet received any letter from the International Cricket Council demanding an explanation on the alleged racist chants against Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds in Vadodara.

"We have not yet received any letter from the ICC," said BCCI Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty from Mumbai.

When told that ICC Chief Executive Malcolm Speed had posted a letter on their official website which said the game's world governing body had written to the BCCI asking for their comments on the issue in the light of media reports, Shetty said "they may have said anything but we have not received any letter from them yet."

Symonds had complained of 'monkey chants' from a section of the Vadodara crowd when he was fielding on the boundary but Cricket Australia had refused to lodge an official complaint and left the matter for the BCCI to handle.

Shetty, however, hit out at Symonds for his remarks in the Australian media on the awards given to Indian cricketers after their Twenty20 World Cup win.
