Dravid has no conflict of interest case: CoA

The Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Tuesday cleared Rahul Dravid's appointment as Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), ruling that there is 'no conflict of interest' case against the former India captain.

Lt General Ravi Thogde, the new member of the CoA, said the ball is now in BCCI Ombudsman-cum-ethics officer D.K Jain's court.

"There is no conflict on Rahul's case. He has got a notice and we have cleared his appointment. We had seen no conflict, but if the Ombudsman finds any conflict, we will give our response to the Ombudsman stating why we found no conflict," Thogde said after a CoA meeting.

"After that he (Ombudsman) has to consider. It's a process and it will continue."

Dravid, one of the most respected figures in Indian cricket, found himself embroiled in a conflict of interest case after his appointment at NCA since he is an employee of India Cements which owns the Chennai Super Kings franchise in the IPL.
