News Bharati    31-Oct-2019
New Delhi, October 31: BCCI ethics officer D.K. Jain has asked Indian cricket great Rahul Dravid to appear in person for the second time, on November 12, for further submissions and clarifications on the conflict of interest allegations levelled against him. Rahul had earlier explained his case in the personal hearing held in Mumbai on September 26.

Dravid is currently the NCA Director in Bengaluru besides being a vice-president in the India Cements group, which owns the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings. MPCA life member Sanjiv Gupta had filed the complaint against Dravid, alleging conflict of interest in his current role as National Cricket Academy (NCA) Head and being an India Cements employee. He was also the head coach of the India A and Under-19 teams before being handed the NCA role, which includes monitoring the progress of these two sides as well.
Dravid has already given a reply and defended himself saying he has taken leave of absence from India Cements and he has nothing to do with the Chennai Super Kings. As per the BCCI constitution, no individual can hold more than one post at the same time.
