Kapil Dev-led Cricket Advisory Committee served conflict of interest notice

The BCCI Ethics Officer Justice (retd.) DK Jain has sent out a conflict of interest notice to all members of the existing Cricket Advisory Committee led by former India skipper Kapil Dev.

Kapil and fellow members, Shantha Rangaswamy and Anshuman Gaekwad, have been asked to respond to the charges levelled against them by Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjiv Gupta by October 10.

The trio, who reappointed Ravi Shastri as the India head coach last month, has been accused of holding multiple portfolios simultaneously, posing an issue of conflict of interest.

"Yes, they have been asked to respond to the complaint with affidavits," a BCCI official told PTI.

The 1983 World Cup-winner Kapil is guilty of being involved with the newly-created Indian Cricketers Association (ICA) and regularly appears as a cricket analyst on television.

He also owns a floodlight company in addition to his CAC role.

Similarly, Gaekwad is the owner of an academy and a member of the BCCI Affiliation Committee.

Former captain of the Indian women's team Rangaswamy is conflicted for also being a director at ICA.

The BCCI constitution bars individuals in the administration from holding more than one post at the same time.

The current CAC picked the women's team head coach W V Raman last year in December but that decision is still under the scanner.

The previous CAC comprising of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman were also given conflict of interest notices following a complaint registered by Gupta.
