Team India’s Trainer Makes His Son Wait For A Role In BCCI To Avoid Conflict Of Interest Issue

The trainer Shanker Basu and the physio Patrick Farhart are smart enough in asking his family members and the other related people to stay away from applying any kind of applications in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to avoid possible conflict of Interest issue.

The duo wants to be available for the Indian National Cricket Team without any tensions during the ICC World Cup 2019. One of the top sources in BCCI revealed that Shankar Basu has asked his own son to be away from applying for the role in BCCI as long as he stays in the BCCI.

Trainer and physio escaped:

According to the BCCI’s constitution clause 38 (3) (a): “Tractable conflicts are those that are resolvable or permissible or excusable through recusal of the individual concerned and – or – with full disclosure of the interest involved.”

“There is unrest as Basu’s wife, Anurita, is a director at Primal Patterns. He sensed that he recused himself from the interview panel. He has categorically told his wife that no one from his institute should apply for BCCI jobs till he is there. Basu communicated to the board that he wanted to go to the World Cup with a clear mind and wants to focus on it. Even Team India physio Patrick Farhart has recused himself from the process of hiring physiotherapist,” a top BCCI official told TOI.

As per the report on Times of India, it is learnt that the veteran trainers are facing backlash from the young trainers. According to the rules, they mentioned that it should be 35 years for the trainers but later, it changed to 45. However, the current trainers are over 50 years.


”As coaches, trainers were also trained and they had to pass Level 1, 2 and 3 to be certified BCCI trainers. But that has not happened for over two years now. It puts the veteran trainers in Indian cricket on the back foot,” a BCCI official informed.

Regarding the same, BCCI has asked for the resumes to get the new role. However, surprisingly, they haven’t announced any interview dates, which made the applicants stay in a puzzle. However, most probably, things will fall in place after the conclusion of ICC World Cup 2019.
