Summary

  • NEW DELHI: Veteran opener Gautam Gambhir’s inclusion as a government nominee in Delhi & District Cricket Association’s (DDCA) Managing Committee has come under the scanner due to conflict of interest issue.
  • Yesterday, Gambhir announced via Twitter that he has been nominated in the managing committee of DDCA and also thanked sports minister Rajyavardhan Rathore.
  • However, Gambhir is an active first-class cricketer and as per Lodha Committee recommendations will fall under the conflict of interest purview if he is a part of the policy making body before retiring from the game.
  • DDCA’s managing committee, as and when it comes into effect, will decide on coach and selection committee, which will then be directly beneficial to Gambhir if he remains an active cricketer.
  • Interestingly, Delhi High Court appointed administrator of DDCA, Justice (Retd) Vikramajit Sen said he was unaware of the existence of any managing committee in the current set-up.
