Conflict of interest issue has become a big trouble for BCCI mandarins and former players. On the day for Asia Cup and World T20 team selection, Anurag Thakur asked if the overseas players and selectors can involve other cricket related activities why conflict of interest allegation will be made against India selectors and commentators.
 
“An English player plays and does commentary. In Australia a selector does commentary. Isn’t that conflict of interest?” Thakur asked. Australian selector Mark Waugh is also a regular commentator for Channel Ten. 
 
Recently a case has been filed by activist Niraj Gunde filed a complaint against Thakur and senior selector Vikram Rathour. According to Gunde, “Thakur was a joint secretary when Rathour was appointed as a senior selector and re-appointed when Thakur became the secretary.” And “the issue is directly connected with the duty of the conflicted person to disclose his handicap in exercising his discretion to decide this issue, whether it be in a collective forum or as an individual. Here, the past relationship of both these individuals was apparently not known to anyone in the BCCI till I brought it up,” Gunde concluded.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The recently in BCCI Annual General Committee meeting Cricket Association of Bengal President Sourav Ganguly had to give up commentary and Anil Kumble left BCCI Technical Committee job to avoid of conflict of interest case to take the job commentary.
 
Thakur also blasts former BCCI president N Srinivasan for inked the image of the Indian cricket board. “Srinivasan era has cost us. BCCI lost face and we didn’t take right decisions. We have tried to improve in last 9 months.”
 
The BCCI secretary in a bid to make over the tainted face of the richest cricket board of world said, “Everything is not bad about BCCI. We have done well in last 30-40 years to come so far. There must be some good we have done.” He also stated that BCCI wants to work for the development in Associate and Affiliated countries. “We want to involve all Associates and Affiliates members in ICC. Hence, the decisions were taken yesterday in Dubai,” Thakur concluded.
