If there’s one man who made cricket a gentleman’s game in India with his selfless career, it is Rahul Dravid.
The BCCI Ethics Officer, Justice (Retd) DK Jain, issued a notice to Rahul Dravid on conflict of interest allegations made by Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association member Sanjay Gupta, reports the Times of India.
According to Gupta, Dravid is currently the director of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) as well as the Vice-President of India Cements Group, the owner of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings.
Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly who expressed displeasure on the notice served to Dravid, said “god help Indian cricket”.
