Former Indian cricketers Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly could come under scrutiny for their current roles, as per the new law that was introduced into BCCI constitution recently by Committee of Administrators (CoA) appointed by Supreme Court.

The apex court-appointed committee are trying to bring in a number of rules into the activities of the board to ensure more transparency in the functioning of the richest cricketing board in the world.

The new rules will provide a unique opportunity to the fans to complain against BCCI with respect to the ticket prices and stadium facilities. However, the most talking rule was regarding the conflict of interest.

Both Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid could be in a spot of bother from the recent rule as the elegant right-hander is currently the coach of India A team while also playing the role of a mentor for IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils.

The dual role is a direct conflict of interest as the clause reveals that no person can be a coach of a team and at the same time be a mentor/coach for an IPL franchise.


The clause in question states: “A is the Coach of a team. He is also Coach of an IPL Franchisee. A is hit by Conflict of Interest.”


The case of Sourav Ganguly is more an indirect conflict of interest as the southpaw is currently a key member of IPL governing council. However, he also holds a share in ISL franchise Atletico de Kolkata alongside Sanjeev Goenka. Goenka also own IPL franchise Rising Pune Super Giants which again results in a conflict of interest.


The clause in question states: “C is a Member of the IPL Governing Council. The IPL enters into a contract with a new franchisee, the Managing Director of which is C’s partner in an independent commercial venture. C is hit by Indirect Conflict of Interest.”
