|Ganguly ready to quit committee to avoid conflict|
NEW DELHI, April 17: Sourav Ganguly is willing to resign from the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after CEO Rahul Johri – on behalf of the board – asked ombudsman DK Jain to examine his dual role as member of CAC and Delhi Capitals advisor.
Speaking to IANS, sources in the know of developments said that while the Cricket Association of Bengal president-cum-DC advisor is confident that he is not conflicted, even then, the former India skipper is willing to step down from the CAC which also has Sunrisers Hyderabad mentor VVS Laxman and Mumbai Indians mentor Sachin Tendulkar as members.
“Sourav last attended a CAC meeting during the appointment of Ravi Shastri as coach after the Champions Trophy in 2017. In fact, the committee has not even met in recent times and he is clear that if required, he will step down from the role to avoid any questions of conflict. Even though his stance remains unchanged that he is not conflicted in any way, he will meet the ombudsman and discuss the same,” the source said. – IANS
