Justice Jain, BCCI Ethics Officer, has found Indian cricketing legends Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman to be currently holding posts that come under the purview of conflict of interest. Ganguly and Laxman have been provided the ultimatum to choose between their jobs as commentators and as cricket managers in India.
“That is the spirit of the constitution, the concept of one man one post. And they are holding more than one post… therefore there is a conflict of interest as defined under the constitution,” Justice Jain has said.
Ganguly currently heads the Cricket Association of Bengal and served as advisor for Delhi Capitals while he is also partaking in a commentary stint in the ongoing World Cup. Laxman is a member of the Cricket Advisory Committee and was a mentor of the Sunrisers Hyderabad, hence forming a conflict of interest.
