At the complaint of former Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) member Sanjeev Gupta, the BCCI ethics officer Vineet Saran has served a conflict-of-interest notice to board president Roger Binny.
PTI has learned that Saran has asked Binny to file a written response by December 20 against the conflict of interest allegations leveled against him.
Sanjeev Gupta, who had previously filed multiple such complaints against former BCCI office holders and coaches as well, this time has alleged that since Roger Binny’s daughter-in-law Mayanti Langer works for Star Sports which has home season media rights for Indian cricket, Roger Binny is in conflict.
“You are hereby informed that a complaint has been received under Rule 39(2)(b) of the Rules and Regulations of BCCI by the Ethics Officer, BCCI for breach of Rule 38 (1) (i) and Rule 38(2) of the said rules, constituting an instance of "conflict of interest" on your part.
You are directed to file your Written Response to the accompanying complaint on or before 20/12/2022. The said response should be supported by a duly executed affidavit," wrote Saran in the notice dated November 21.
Roger Binny, a member of the 1983 World Cup-winning Indian team, was chosen as the 36th President of the BCCI, replacing Sourav Ganguly, last month.
