"The things that AITA have done last week have been unprofessional and unethical. Players are disappointed," Somdev said from Melbourne. "AITA have made a lot of claims and everything but the truth is we haven't got anything in writing. That is the thing players have asked for, we want that in writing because it would be foolish, given the history of AITA, to go into an agreement based on faith.
"Nothing came in writing. The last e-mail that we received was on January 6 and that had nothing that they said in the press release. It just goes to show what sort of federation they are," he added.
Somdev said the players have asked for just basic rights and want the AITA to deal with them professionally. "All that players are asking is keep us in light of what is being done. We raised a few concerns and we want to be dealt with professionally. We are asking for basic rights, unfortunately we are not able to communicate that properly to the selection committee or the AITA and it is disappointing," he said.
Somdev said if AITA would have given everything in writing, all the players would have happily played the Davis Cup tie. "If we had things in writing,100 per cent we would have played.," he said.
