Bangalore:

KSCA officials have decided to report a hoax call about Rahul Dravid's presser to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The official scorer on Sunday made an announcement that Dravid would address a press conference at the end of the second day's play.

The announcement, based on a slip allegedly signed by Indian team's logistics manager Russell Radhakrishnan, sent the media buzzing with interpretations as to what could the Bangalore-based Dravid announce in the middle of a Test match. Is he announcing retirement from One-Day Internationals? Could it be retirement from the international cricket?

"There were several interpretations. It was in a bad taste, and that's why we are making a formal complaint to the KSCA and the BCCI," said an official attached with the media.

The freelance journalist who wrote that slip and forged Radhakrishnan's signature apologised to the media on Monday for his "joke".
