Sourav Ganguly wants to make out all of his short tenure of BCCI’s president. First, he took a bold decision to introduce day-night Test match in Indian cricket and now, he is looking forward to work on the conflict of Intrest rules in BCCI.
Former cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble have been tangled up in Conflict of Intrest clauses. Sourav Ganguly, who himself has been trapped, opens up that he is working on this subject.
It’s got to be practical – Sourav Ganguly
He said that cricketer like Sachin Tendulkar is not able to participate in administration because of the clause, which is a matter of concern. Ganguly wants the former cricketers to involve in the administration and give their useful inputs.
“I am unable to get ex-cricketers on board because of the Conflict of Interest. (We need to deal with) Conflict of Interest with a lot of common sense. Someone like Sachin had to leave. It’s got to be practical. Conflict of interest should apply only to administrators and cricketers should be left out of it,” he said at the India Today Conclave (East).
Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly had to leave the Cricket Advisory of Committee (CAC) after Conflict of Interest charges were brought against them. Similarly, Kapil Dev-led the CAC team also resigned from their posts after appointing Ravi Shastri as India’s head coach. Now, the positions of this committee are vacant.
The Indian cricket will get benefit if Sourav Ganguly is successful in finding the solution for Conflict of Intrest. Everyone has the eye upon the former Indian captain to make crucial decisions which can help in the growth of cricket in India. Pundits have appreciated his revolutionary decision to introduce pink ball game in India.
