Star network, which bought the Asia Cup rights for eight years in 2016, has raised objection over BCCI's decision to rest Virat Kohli for the 15-day tournament, saying that absence of the star cricketer will affect both the broadcaster and the stakeholders and goes against the implicit clauses of their eight-year agreement. BCCI replied that Star cannot have a say in their internal selection matters.
