Ethics Officer Questions Former Cricketers

The Indian cricket board's ethics officer, adjudicating in the conflict of interest case involving Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, has ruled that the cricketers will have to abide by one-post-at-a-time clause as mentioned in the Supreme Court-approved BCCI constitution. Laxman mentors Sunrisers Hyderabad and is a Cricket Advisory Committee member while Sachin mentors Mumbai Indians and is also a Cricket Advisory Committee member. In Sachin's (Tendulkar), the conflict of interest did not arise as he had withdrawn from CAC. In these two cases (Ganguly and Laxman), I have given them options, they can decide. "I cleared Tendulkar of any conflict of interest because he had given up his position on the CAC and was only a mentor with the Mumbai Indians", Jain added.

"One person one post is the soul of Lodha committee recommendations".

Jain, who was appointed by the Supreme Court in February, also touched on the subject of active players such as Robin Uthappa and Irfan Pathan doing commentary at the ongoing World Cup.

The order means that players will have to choose either to be with IPL teams, cricket administration, coaching role or commentary. So they can apply their minds and be ready for that situation. It is understood, the rule will apply irrespective of whether they are contracted with the BCCI or the broadcasters.

Ganguly and Laxman were deemed to have breached Rule 38 (4) of the BCCI constitution, which states that a person can not hold two positions at the same point out of 16 listed. "They can read the order and act accordingly".

Jason Cundy replied to the Aubameyang news, by adding: "Well that means Lukaku is moving on doesn't it". It was a tough year, but I had the chance to score goals because the team played a great season.

However, it is for the BCCI to enforce Jain's order.

"I have only tried to interpret the BCCI constitution and Rule 38 (4) to the best of my knowledge". One person one post is the concept of Justice Lodha also.

The 16 positions are: Player (current), selector/member of cricket committee, team official, commentator, match official, administrator/office bearer, electoral officer, ombudsman & ethics officer, auditor, any person who is governance, management or employee of a franchisee, member of a standing committee, CEO & managers, office Bearer of a Member (state association), service provider (legal, financial etc.), contractual entity (broadcast, security, contractor etc.) and owner of cricket academy.

"BCCI Shall take affidavit from every existing post holder that the said post holder is not occupying any other post in BCCI / in any State Association / IPL / TV Broadcasters & the said individual is also not disqualified under Rule 6 (5), 14 (3to 9 ) or under rule of the BCCI Constitution".
