BCCI ethics officer says no rethink on conflict of commentators

Indian Express – The BCCI ethics officer, DK Jain, has refused to have a rethink on his conflict of interest order on former Indian cricketers Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.

Summary

  • The BCCI ethics officer, DK Jain, has refused to have a rethink on his conflict of interest order on former Indian cricketers Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.
  • The Indian Express has learnt that Jain has insisted that no individuals under the BCCI umbrella can hold more than one post at a time, a stand that would force former players to choose between their BCCI / IPL roles and commentary assignments.
  • Stressing that a person can hold only one post at a time, Jain had said that both these cricketers were flouting “one person, one position” norm prescribed by SC-appointed Justice Lodha’s panel.
  • Jain’s order, if implemented, will have serious implications as former cricketers will have to choose between commentary assignments and their official positions with the BCCI and IPL franchises.
  • Apart from Ganguly and Laxman, there are atleast 20 former Indian cricketers doing commentary in the World Cup.
