According to the reports, India’s ambassador to Zimbabwe, R Masakui had tried to prevent the player’s arrest on Saturday night at a Harare hotel.However, official sources did admit that the person arrested was in fact affiliated to one of the sponsors of the ongoing limited-overs series.”An Indian affiliated with one of the sponsors has been arrested. He has also denied the charge and said he is ready for a DNA test to prove his innocence. Our Ambassador is following the matter closely,” sources at the Ministry of External Affairs said.India are currently engaged in a three-match Twenty20 series against Zimbabwe after sweeping the ODIs 3-0. The visitors lost the opening T20I in Harare and will be playing the second match on Monday at the same venue.
