Kapil Dev-Led Cricket Advisory Committee Receive Conflict Of Interest Notice
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ethics Officer DK Jain on September 28 (Saturday) has sent a notice over Conflict of Interest issue. The panel comprises of former India skipper Kapil Dev, Shantha Rangaswamy and Anshuman Gaekwad.
The three-member panel was appointed with the task of picking India’ head coach. After going through a number of applications, the committee reappointed incumbent coach Ravi Shastri for another term in August earlier this year.
Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) life member Sanjeev Gupta, who filed a Conflict of Interest complaint against Rahul Dravid, had also filed the complaint against the trio. BCCI has asked three of them to respond by October 10 over the Conflict of Interest charges labelled against them. As per the BCCI constitution, no individual can hold more than one post at the same time.CAC. Credit: Twitter

“Yes, they have been asked to respond to the complaint with affidavits,” a BCCI official said.
In the complaint, Sanjeev Gupta has claimed that the CAC members don multiple cricketing roles. He wrote that 1983 World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev is conflicted as he is a commentator, owner of a floodlight company, member of Indian Cricketers Association, besides his CAC role.BCCI.

On the other hand, Gupta alleged that Anshuman Gaekwad too is conflicted as he owns an academy and is a member of the BCCI Affiliation Committee. Likewise, Shantha Rangaswamy also comes under the complaint for her dual role with CAC and ICA. The CAC had also picked the women’s head coach WV Raman in December but at that time it was an ad-hoc committee.
