No Tractable Battle, BCCI Accountable For Present State of affairs: Tendulkar


Sachin Tendulkar in his 13-point response to BCCI Ethics Officer has requested him to name CoA chief and CEO to “clarify their position”.

Sachin Tendulkar has rejected BCCI’s commentary that his alleged Battle of Curiosity falls underneath “tractable category”, terming the mum or dad physique “responsible for the current situation” arising resulting from his function as a member of the Cricket Advisory Committee and an ‘Icon’ of Mumbai Indians. Actually, Tendulkar in his 13-point response (in possession of PTI) to BCCI Ethics Officer DK Jain has requested him to name Committee of Directors (CoA) chief Vinod Rai and CEO Rahul Johri to “clarify their position”.

In accordance with the BCCI’s structure clause 38 (3) (a): “Tractable conflicts are those that are resolvable or permissible or excusable through recusal of the individual concerned and – or – with full disclosure of the interest involved”.

All three CAC members — Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman — have been served notices by the Ombudsman cum Ethics officer DK Jain and all three have rejected of their preliminary affidavits.

Nevertheless what appears to have angered the legendary cricketer is BCCI CEO Johri’s letter (in session with CoA) to Jain the place identical to Ganguly, Tendulkar’s difficulty has additionally been termed as a case of “tractable Conflict of Interest”, a competition that the enduring cricketer firmly rejected.

Probably the most pertinent factors the place Tendulkar has given a powerful rebuttal are factors 10, 11 and 12.

“Without prejudice to the aforesaid, the Noticee submits that it is surprising that the BCCI, being the very authority responsible for the Noticee’s empanelment to the Cricket Advisory Committee (“CAC”), is presently taking a position that the Noticee is exposed to an alleged conflict of interest. It is reiterated that, the Noticee was declared as the Mumbai Indians ‘ICON’ post his retirement in 2013, which was much prior to his appointment to the CAC in 2015,” Tendulkar has said in his response.

Identical to Laxman, Tendulkar additionally reiterated that neither the CEO nor the CoA had ever clarified the phrases of reference as regards to his appointment in CAC.

“The Noticee (Tendulkar) has repeatedly sought clarification from the BCCI on the scope of his function within the CAC – however has not obtained a response from BCCI until date. BCCI is conscious that the CAC merely performs an advisory / recommendatory function – and due to this fact, the Noticee’s function as a Mumbai Indians Icon (which the truth is has all the time been within the public area) can’t, in any sensible method, battle together with his involvement within the CAC.

What has probably irked Tendulkar is BCCI’s contradictory stand which he has laid out in level No 12.

“The Noticee fails to grasp how the BCCI (after having appointed him to the CAC) can now preserve its present stand that he’s ready of ‘tractable’ battle of curiosity. The BCCI Response doesn’t make clear this variance in its stance and the Noticee requests the Hon’ble Ethics Officer to name upon BCCI Officers, Mr. Rahul Johri and Mr. Vinod Rai to make clear this place.”

Tendulkar additionally identified how he had recused himself from recruitment strategy of the nationwide U-19 choice committee as his son Arjun was a contender within the colts group.

“It’s vital to notice that the Noticee had particularly written to the BCCI in respect of the potential battle of curiosity that would have arisen within the aforesaid state of affairs,” he wrote referring to that individual state of affairs. What has damage Tendulkar is the truth that he’s being requested questions regardless of serving Indian cricket for 20 years.

“The Noticee has served the Indian cricket group for greater than 2 many years and accepted empanelment with the CAC to assist and contribute in direction of the expansion of Indian cricket. It’s unlucky that the Noticee has to make clear the questions raised within the Grievance and BCCI Response.

“The Noticee repeats that BCCI is responsible for the situation created in terms of the Noticee’s honorary empanelment to the CAC even though he was a Mumbai Indians Icon at the relevant time. The BCCI shall be called upon to clarify the issue,” Tendulkar additionally talked about in his response.
