Rahul Dravid served a "conflict of interest" notice by the BCCI Ethics Officer
The conflict of interest case against Rahul Dravid has been dismissed by BCCI ethics officer DK Jain. The former India captain found himself engulfed in the conflict quandary after Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjiv Gupta questioned Dravid's role as the head of the National Cricket Academy while also serving as vice-president of India Cements, an organization with close ties to IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings. National Cricket Academy head Rahul Dravid has been given a clean chit by the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) Ombudsman-cum-Ethics Officer Justice (Retd) D.K. Jain over the conflict of interest allegations leveled against him. Mr. Jain said that he found there was no case of conflict against the former India skipper. "I have found no case of conflict against Dravid," he said. In his earlier submission, Dravid had defended himself saying he has taken leave of absence from India Cements and he has nothing to do with the Chennai Super Kings. As per Rule 38 (4) of the BCCI constitution, no individual can hold more than one post at the same time. However, in Dravid's case, the ethics officer has interpreted the rule a bit differently while in the order passed in June, Jain had found Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman conflicted for holding multiple posts.
A CoA member of IANS said, they have already given their response and they will fight the case on Dravid’s behalf as he is an employee of BCCI. They already made it clear that David does not have a conflict as far as the committee is concerned and that is why he was appointed at the NCA in the first place. Earlier, Jain had sent a notice to Dravid and asked him to respond to the same after getting a complaint from Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) life member Sanjeev Gupta. According to the complaint Jain received, Dravid was conflicted as he had only taken leave of absence from employers India Cements and hadn't resigned from his position. Jain had clearly said that he would decide on whether to proceed further with the matter or not after the former captain's reply.
