BCCI's rotten ways percolate to IPL franchisees

Deccan Chargers to probe Laxman-Afridi spat
The Deccan Chargers are to probe the genesis of the media war between two of their contracted players, Laxman and Afridi.
Actually, it is foolish of the administrators to react to such petty inconsequential issues. The whole world knows that an insecure Afridi has made it a point to shoot off his mouth at every given opportunity. One would go so far as to blame Laxman for reacting and thus giving unwarranted legitimacy to Afridi's statement.
Being a corporate entity the franchisee's should have shown better sense and  restrained themselves from following BCCI's blundering bureaucratic style of management.
Instead of going public about instituting a probe, a better and considered method would have been to call both Afridi and Laxman privately and request them to confine their differences to a team meeeting.

Laxmans comment was only a reaction. Only Afridi shd be probed for making his comment.

R,

Are they trying to determine whether there is any basis to Afridi's comment or are they trying to find out if a comment was made?

If they are probing to find out whether there is any basis to Afridi's comment, then it is bad news to Laxman as it implies the management of the Chargers suspect Laxman's capabilities.
