The four member disciplinary committee formed to look into acts of indiscipline by Sanju Samson completed its hearing here on Thursday.

The Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) had issued a show cause notice to Sanju Samson for indiscipline and formed a committee to probe the matter. The committee headed by T.R. Balakrishnan conducted the hearing at the KCA headquarters at Thycaud. Sanju Samson, his father Samson Viswanath and Kerala captain Rohan Prem appeared before the committee on Thursday. U. Manoj, who was the Kerala team's manager for this Ranji season, had earlier testified before the committee.

Sanju Samson had earlier in an email sent to KCA apologised for his behaviour. Both Sanju and his father apologised again for their bad behaviour during the hearing before the committee. The committee will recommend its findings to KCA’s central council which will take action against Sanju.

S. Ramesh, Sreejith Nair and K.Mohan are the other members of the disciplinary committee

The central council is slated to meet soon. KCA sources said that the Sanju is likely to be let off with a warning as the general feeling within the KCA is that any harsh action will jeopardize the career of a promising player.
