Former Supreme Court Judge DK Jain Extends His Term

DK Jain will work as the ombudsman of the BCCI and ethics officer after renewing his contract last week. 

It was confirmed that former Supreme Court judge DK Jain will continue working as Board of Control for Cricket in India’s ombudsman and ethics officer for another year. 

Jain was appointed as BCCI’s first ombudsman last year and was later given an additional role of an ethics officer. His term is supposed to end in February but decided to renew his contract last week. 

‘The Board communicated with me (about an extension) and I have given my consent. I have formally resumed office for another term, which is for one year. For now, all the hearings will be done online and once things improve, we will decide’, Jain stated. 

‘Parikh’s case has been pending and expect it to be closed shortly’, he added. 

The case is regarding his pending verdict on conflict of interest accusations against Mayank Parikh, the Indian cricket team’s former liaison officer. There were also allegations of Parikh running six clubs in Mumbai. 

Soon after taking charge in 2019, he also handled the Koffee with Karan controversy that involves KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya and a case against Sachin Tendulkar as a member of BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee and as a mentor of Mumbai Indians in the IPL.
