India’s iconic cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has landed in trouble as he was served with a notice by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ombudsman-cum-Ethics-Officer Justice DK Jain.
The notice has been sent for an alleged conflict of interest as the master blaster is operating both as a mentor to Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians as well as a member of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC).
In the notice, Justice DK Jain has directed the Maharashtra born cricketer to submit a written response by April 28 which needs to be supported by an affidavit.
Failure to do so would allow the case to proceed without Tendulkar getting any further opportunity to explain his point of view.
Earlier former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly also appeared before Justice Jain for the same offence as the 46-year old was serving a triple role which included the presidency of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), membership of CAC and an advisory role of IPL franchise Delhi Capitals.
