Former Indian World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev resigned from the chairman role of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). However, he hasn’t revealed the reason for this resignation.
This latest resignation has come after another CAC member Shantha Rangaswamy resigned from her post after receiving the conflict of interest notice. Kapil Dev, former Indian women’s national cricket team captain Shantha Rangaswamy and former Indian cricketer and two-time men’s coach Anshuman Gaekwad were the members in CAC.
These CAC members have jointly selected WV Raman as the head coach of Indian women’s national cricket team last year. In last August, this committee has chosen to retain Ravi Shastri as the head coach of Indian men’s national cricket team. Soon after that, Shastri has earned the extension of a two-year contract in this post.
Recently, Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) life member Sanjeev Gupta has registered the conflict of interest complaints against all the three CAC members. He claimed that all these three CAC members are holding two posts. Later, the BCCI ethics officer DK Jain provided the conflict of interest notices to all the three CAC members.
Soon after that notice, Shantha Rangaswamy resigned from the CAC post. She also resigned from the director post of the Indian Cricketers Association (ICA).
Kapil Dev emailed his resignation to the BCCI
Now, Kapil Dev has also decided to follow the same path. However, he is continuing his role in the Indian Cricketers Association (ICA).
Kapil Dev has notified his resignation via email to the SC-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) head Vinod Rai and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.
The former Indian captain wrote, “It was a pleasure to be part of the Ad-Hoc CAC to specifically select the Head Coach for the Men’s Cricket Team. I hereby tender my resignation from the same with immediate effect.”
