Recently, a life-member of Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association, Sanjeev Gupta filed a complaint to DK Jain highlighting a conflict of interest issue against Dravid. This complaint led Jain to send a legal notice to the Director of NCA, Rahul Dravid. According to Gupta’s complaint, Dravid is allegedly conflicted as he is the NCA Director and also employed as vice-president of India Cements group, which owns IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings.

“Yes, I have sent a notice to Mr. Rahul Dravid last week after receiving a complaint. He has been given two weeks to reply to the allegations of Conflict of Interest. Based on his reply, I will decide whether to proceed further or not,” Justice Jain told PTI.

The news has taken Cricket Association of Bengal President Sourav Ganguly completely in a shock. Ganguly lashed out at BCCI for sending the notice to Dravid, who has served Indian cricket with utmost honesty. The Prince of Kolkata took to Twitter to express his views saying that this has been the new trend and that only god can save Indian cricket now.

New fashion in indian cricket …..conflict of interest ….Best way to remain in news …god help indian cricket ……Dravid Gets Conflict of Interest Notice from BCCI Ethics Officer,” Ganguly tweeted.

Soon after Sourav Ganguly’s tweet, veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh also came in support of Rahul Dravid. The Turbanator said that sending notices to legends like them is similar to insulting them. Previously,  Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Ganguly were also served Conflict of Interest notices too.

“Really ?? Don’t know where it’s heading to.. u can’t get better person thn him for indian cricket. Sending notice to these legends is like insulting them.. cricket need their services for betterment.. yes god save indian cricket,” Harbhajan tweeted.
