The batting legend went on to state in a recent news conference that he had no interaction over the subject. While various stories stated that the BCCI will handle this situation, no more remarks have been made against the red-ball captain.

They should keep it under wraps: Salman Butt
He stated on his YouTube channel that the board was wise in keeping this topic under the clouds. However, Butt believes the board did hold a discussion about the entire situation but kept it secret. He went on to remark that the important job is to win games and serve their country.
“It’s a sensitive topic and it would have been naïve if there were exchange of words over the matter to the board would have sent a show-cause notice. That is not the way. Team in on a tour. The main objective is to play cricket and win matches and play for the country,” said Salman Butt.
“I think they have been sensible about it, all of them. And they should keep it under wraps. Better not to give media half-volleys or full tosses or else you will be hit for boundaries or sixes. Obviously, they have had a discussion about it, but it has obviously been all internal. And that is the way to go,” he added.
Using this comparison, the 37-year-old attempted to explain disclosing everything publicly would have sparked controversy. When questioned about Kohli’s views, the former Indian skipper stated that they will handle it and declined to make any further statements.
