Mumbai: The BCCI has issued a notice to Rahul Dravid, who has been identified as Mr. Trusted in the Indian cricket team. Former Indian Captain and now National Cricket Academy (NCA) cricket chief Dravid has been issued a notice by the BCCI's conduct officer on charges of conflict of interest against him. BCCI Lokpal and Conduct Officer Justice (Retd) DK Jain has issued a notice on the complaint of life member Sanjeev Gupta of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA).
According to Sanjeev Gupta's complaint, Dravid is a clash of alleged interests, as well as the vice-chairman of the India Cement Group, as the NCA director. Indian Cement owns IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings. "Yes, I sent a notice to Rahul Dravid last week after receiving a complaint. He has been given two weeks to respond to allegations of conflict of interest. On the basis of his reply, I will decide whether to proceed with the matter or not.
"It is likely that Dravid will send his reply on August 16 and if Justice Jain feels he will have to be present for the hearing. Gupta is the same person who had lodged a complaint of conflict of interest when he joined IPL franchise teams.
