BCCI prepares code of Ethics to save its integrity
Amidst the IPL Scam of 2013, Board Of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India is on its way to prepare a ‘Code of Ethic’s to avoid issues of ‘Conflict of Interest’ in the coming future. To address the issue, BCCI has written a letter to all Cricket Associations in India.
BCCI has said that anybody, who has a conflict of interest, will not be allowed on the board of BCCI. BCCI was forced to take this step to save its integrity and the credibility of some stalwarts. This code could bring transparency in BCCI’s operation.
But this is much easier when said than done. This new rule would not allow committee to have any commercial interest in the game whatsoever. Some of India’s ace players would be at foul because of this. Like, Sachin Tendulkar is a Mentor to Mumbai Indians, as well as anadvisor to BCCI. Rahul Dravid is both coach to under19 and India ’A’; at the same time he is mentor to Rajasthan Royals. Surav Ganguly was a commentator at ICC world cup 2015 and he is also a member in BCCI committee.
The committee has also given a time frame to the association but the time frame is not disclosed yet. But, the rule would be applicable all the BCCI members.
On this Brijesh Patel, said that cricketers should have a different rule to this, because according to Supreme Court cricketers are involved on their professional capacity. BCCI had appointed the cricketers prior to IPL. Rajasthan Royals is under scanner but what about Rahul Dravid? Or Sachin Tendulkar who is a part of the Mumbai Indian’s team.
There is a lot of confusion on what has to be done with the cricketers? Should they be treated equal to the administrator or they should not hold a role. Some also are of the view that, if game is developing because of cricketers contribution made they should be excused.
Ajay Shirke, ex- IPL governing council associate and BCCI treasurer, said, “My personal opinion is that a cricketer’s direct involvement with the game is not conflict of interest. They’re contributing to cricket through coaching, commentary or representation in the (BCCI/state association) committees. They’re facilitating the cause of associations or cricket board. They’re nurturing our next generation. This is different from owning a team or having stakes in something with strong commercial interests.”
