Complaints of Conflict of Interest Filed Against Virat Kohli

Indian captain Virat Kohli is currently being scanned for an alleged conflict of interest violation that he has made. 

A complaint against Indian captain Virat Kohli has been filed by Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association member Sanjeev Gupta for an alleged case about conflict of interest. Gupta, who filed the case on July 4, is also known to have filed cases against other cricket players like Tendulkar, Laxman, and Dravid. 

Gupta’s complaint read, ‘Shri Virat Kohli is occupying two posts at a time in blatant violation to BCCI Rule 38 (4) approved by Supreme Court Of India. As such, he must relinquish his one post at once in compliance. His two posts are covered as under: A - 38(4)(a) - Player and B - 38(4)(o) - Contractual Entity, to be read with BCCI Rule 38(1) (iii)’. 

The complaint was filed with BCCI’s ethics officer Justice DK Jain. The report mainly tackled about Kohli holding two conflicting positions -- one as India’s team captain, and another one for being the director of two business ventures. In the said businesses, Kohli’s co-directors are associated with Cornerstone Sport and Entertainment Private Limited which is a talent management firm for Indian cricket players. 

In a statement said on July 5, Justice Jain said, ‘I have received a complaint. I will examine it and then see if the case is made out or not. If yes, then I have to afford an opportunity to him (Kohli) to respond’. 

Kohli is the national team captain of India and is regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world. Aside from captaining the Men in Blue, he also leads the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the famous Indian Premier League. To learn more about the IPL, check out Betwala.
