Every year thousands of aspirants make mistakes while filling the DU form but a mistake committed by Indian cricketer Pawan Negi, who has played one match for Team India while filling the application form proved out to be a costly one.
During filling up of application form,Pawan Negi submitted a certificate which stated that he played for Vijay Hazare Trophy, instead of submitting a document proving that he has played for India.
Pawan Negi, who was bought by Delhi Daredevils for INR 8.5 crores in the Indian Premier League last year,.He will now have to go through the sports trials like others in order to become eligible.
‚ÄúHe (Negi) uploaded a certificate that says he participated in the Vijay Hazare trophy, which is a national level tournament. We are bound by guidelines and particular about document requirements. So he will have to participate in the trials,‚Äù said Anil Kumar,Director of Sports Council at DU.
‚ÄúThese are the highest tournaments for sports as recognised by the government of India. We are trying to honour their performance and achievements. Their participation (in these tournaments) is not just an honour for them, but also others,‚Äù he added.
