Evan Speechly, the Indian cricket team physiotherapist, has resigned from his post just before the Test series against Australia due to 'personal problems'. The South African physio's two year contract with the BCCI was to end in November 2013. The board has now asked Nitin Patel — who had a stint as physio of the Indian team — to leave his duties with the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore and join the squad in Chennai.
"Speechly has resigned citing personal problems. He told us that his wife wasn't well and needed to spend more time at home," a top BCCI official told The Indian Express. "Till the new physiotherapist is appointed, BCCI has asked Nitin Patel to be with the Indian team in the interim."
It, however, still remains unclear if Speechly will return as Royal Challengers Bangalore's physio for the upcoming IPL season.
