Mumbai: Indian cricket legends Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly could come under scrutiny, as per the new Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) constitution set by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).

The change in BCCI constitution brings about a number of fresh rules to the Indian cricket board.

In a key change the fans can now lodge their complaints against the BCCI regarding ticket prices, and stadium facilities.

However, the former Indian captains, Ganguly and Dravid, may find themselves in a spot of bother, with the Memorandum of Associations.

Rahul Dravid, who is the coach of the India A side, also has a mentor role with IPL side Delhi Daredevils, which means that he can be in a direct conflict of interest.

The clause in question states: “A is the Coach of a team. He is also Coach of an IPL Franchisee. A is hit by Conflict of Interest.”

However, Ganguly’s case is more indirect. The former India skipper is currently the president of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB). He also co-owns the ISL football side Atletico de Kolkata with Sanjeev Goenka, who separately owns IPL franchise Rising Pune Supergiants.

The clause in question states: “C is a Member of the IPL Governing Council. The IPL enters into a contract with a new franchisee, the Managing Director of which is C’s partner in an independent commercial venture. C is hit by Indirect Conflict of Interest.”
