Kapil Dev, the chairman of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) has stepped down from the role. He is the second one to step down from the three-member committee after Shantha Rangaswami.

The story

Kapil, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy were named in the Cricket Advisory Committee after Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and V.V.S. Laxman refused to take the decision about India’s women’s coach, last year. The committee that was initially as an ad-hoc body, named W.V. Raman as the head coach of the women’s team. It also reappointed Ravi Shastri as the men’s head coach after the World Cup 2019. But then Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) life member Sanjiv Gupta went on to file a complaint against the trio based of the code of conduct of the BCCI constitution that suggests no individual can hold more than one post at the same time.
Gupta stated that the CAC members are involved in multiple cricketing roles. According to him, Kapil is conflicted as he is a commentator, owner of a floodlight company, and member of Indian Cricketers Association, besides his CAC role. The same was said against Rangaswamy, because of her multiple roles with the CAC and ICA. The members of the committee were served Conflict of Interest notice by BCCI‘s ethics officer DK Jain on September 2019.

What next

Rangaswamy, eventually resigned from the CAC and ICA a couple of days ago. Kapil followed her step but did not reveal the reason for his resignation. He sent an email to the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai. Shantha Rangaswamy expressed frustration and said, “I want to contribute to BCCI but I want to pursue other things as well. I can’t do it if I stick to these positions.”
Even Rahul Dravid was also accused of the same due to his roles as National Cricket Academy head and vice-president at India Cements. He met the BCCI Ethics Officer DK Jain following the same.
