Off late, there was a buzz in the cricketing circles of India, that former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly might be involved in a conflict of interest issue. However, all the speculation regarding Ganguly’s involvement in the conflict of interest case was put to rest by BCCI President Shashank Manohar. Manohar recently spoke about the matter and gave his clarification on the same. It was widely believed that Ganguly might have conflict of interest issues since he was a Governing Council member, as well as the co owner of ISL team Atletico de Kolkata.






Sanjeev Goenka, whose company recently bought an IPL team, is also a co owner of the ISL side. “As far as I understand, Sourav Ganguly has no conflict of interest. If he would have been involved with any team (IPL), then it would have been a different case. But I think a lot of people are not understanding what conflict of interest means,” BCCI president Manohar said.

“Suppose I am lawyer and I have a client. If that client later at some point gets associated with BCCI, how is it a conflict of interest. It can only be a conflict of interest if someone in his position show bias. I think this is now being taken to an absurd level,” Manohar explained.
