Dev and Gaekwad Resigns from CAC

Shanta Ramgswamy also stepped down from the committee last week

Two members of the BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee, Kapil Dev and Anshuman Gaekwad resigned from their positions due to conflict of interest. A notice was sent to them by the BCCI ethics officer after Sanjeev Gupta filed a complaint against them. 

On October 1, Dev filed his resignation to the CoA and BCCI chief executive officer Rahul Johri. Gaekwad was the next one to file his resignation yesterday. 

‘It was a pleasure to be part of the ad-hoc CAC to specifically select the Head Coach for the Men's Cricket Team’, Kapil Dev said. ‘I hereby tender my resignation from the same with immediate effect’.

The conflict of interest allegations with Dev is that he owns a company that supplies floodlights. He is also a founding director of the Indian Cricketers’ Association (ICA) which was founded months ago. Gaekwad and Rangswamy were also directors of the ICA. 

In the BCCI constitution, it is said that an individual should not hold more than one post at the same time. With the CAC members’ case, they are subjected to conflict of interest.

Kapil Dev is a former cricketer who is also known as one of the best captains in the history of cricket. To know more about the sport, read the cricket guide on Betwala.
