BCCI raised everyone’s eyebrows with the surprise announcement of “MS Dhoni is the mentor of Indian cricket team for the T20 world cup”, everyone welcomed this move but one person is having a complaint against this, Sanjeev Gupta Former Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjeev Gupta
MS Dhoni’s appointment as the Indian team’s mentor didn’t sit down well as the BCCI apex council received a complaint citing the conflict of interest clause in the Lodha Committee reforms as he is the captain of CSK in IPL.
Sanjeev Gupta has sent a letter to the apex council members that Dhoni’s appointment is a violation of the Conflict of Interest clause, under which one person cannot hold two posts.
“Yes, Gupta has sent a letter to apex council members including Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah. He has cited clause 38 (4) of the BCCI constitution which loosely states that one person cannot be holding two separate posts. The Apex Council will need to consult its legal team to check the ramifications,” a BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
So now it is uncertain whether M S Dhoni will be the mentor of the Indian team or not, as per the rules he can’t be the mentor until he is retiring from IPL.
Maybe Dhoni’s retirement is on the cards? after this year’s IPL? what is your opinion?
