After CoA, which was appointed by the honourable Supreme Court of India, the board has told all the players to quit their jobs with public sector companies The main reason behind this move is to avoid the Conflict of interest issue.
Wah Cicket reported that this will be one of the most important topics of discussions at the SGM in Delhi on Wednesday.
“Yes it will be tabled and we will talk about it in detail. Not just players but there are whole lot of other things as well when we deal with conflict of interest,” a BCCI official told Wah cricket.
“The players obviously will be most affected and it will be on the members to decide. We also have the option of referring it back to the Supreme Court as per their recent directions,” the official added.
It was also reported that the maximum recruitments in cricket are under government or public sector companies which includes Railways, Air India, ONGC, HPCL, Indian Oil, FCI, BSNL, Audit and Excise, Income Tax office.
