Anshuman Gaekwad, former Indian opener resigned from the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). He also sent a formal email on October 2 to the BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.

Gaekwad resigns following conflict of interest

Following the conflict of interest issue, raised by Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) life member Sanjiv Gupta the CAC members resigned from their respective posts. According to Gupta, CAC members are involved in multiple cricketing roles and that goes against the BCCI constitution. The constitution says that one cannot hold more than one individual post at the same time. The CAC members were eventually served Conflict of Interest notice by BCCI’s ethics officer DK Jain in September 2019.

The same issue was raised against Rahul Dravid for being involved with National Cricket Academy and India Cements at the same time. Dravid went on to meet the ethics officer for further progress. But the CAC member Shantha Rangaswamy did not want to go into all these and resigned from CAC and Indian Cricketers’ Association as well. The frustrated Rangaswamy 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.”

What he said

On October 2 Kapil Dev, the chief of the committee was the first person to resign without stating any reason. Then after a few hours, Anshuman Gaekwad also took his final call on the same after learning about other members. According to the notice sent to Gaekwad by DK Jain, BCCI’s Ethics officer, his position in CAC was being conflicted with him being a director in the Indian Cricketers Association. Gaekwad told Cricbuzz, “I decided to resign since was given to learn that Kapil Dev and Shanta had also resigned from the position and that Mr (Vinod) Rai believed that the committee does not exist. I sent my resignation just so that even if there was any technical ground on which the committee still existed, I didn’t want to be a part of it.”
