The main reason behind the administrative reforms of the Justice (retd) RM Lodha Committee is the conflict of interest of the Cricket Board of Control Board (BCCI). Former BCCI president N Srinivasan’s controversy created a lot of negative force within the BCCI, which led to his ouster from the cricketing agency. From then on, the governing committee (COA) appointed by the Supreme Court comes down to the governing system and refreshes the definition of conflict – a fake all cricket debate.

Later, it was meant to be run by the new government, but nothing significantly changed. The loss is in place and some reforms of the Lodha Committee are still under sub-trial in the apex court; the BCCI has yet to print the fine.

Of course, the conflict is not good for the game and it should not be at all. However, some disputes are good as well and they should be present. But how?

Imagine if an injured fast bowler and his friend from Chennai turned out to be the best sports orthopedic in Srinivasan’s state of Tamil Nadu, wouldn’t that friend be asked to appear for the cricketer?

When Sachin Tendulkar And his colleagues Harbhajan Singh Was involved in a legal battle against an Australian cricketer with a racial slowness Andrew SymondsIt is the father of former BCCI president and current ICC chairman Shashank Manohar, VR Manohar, a former Advocate General of Maharashtra who was busy bailing out Indian cricketers. It was a concussion, but a good one. And that is how a good conflict is defined and it should be in cricket.

A few months before the Supreme Court’s approval of the Loda Committee’s reforms, including a conflict of interest court, the BCCI drafted an internal draft of its own, circulated to all its members at the Annual General Meeting of the 29th and agreed ‘in principle’. It was drafted by a very important member of the BCCI legal committee, Abhay Apte, who later became head of the Maharashtra Cricket Association, where the board had to create a set of rules of conflict beyond definition.

Based on the principle that conflict-based rules are hard to detect, the legal committee, led by PS Raman, and Somajulu, along with Darbusula, suggested a method to study such a case in Opt so that someone was earning it wrongly. The definition also recommended how to record a conflict so as to ensure that there was a conflict beyond the definition. Sadly, board members did not have time to execute the suggestions.

“There is nothing wrong with having a policy in place to overcome conflicts of interest, though it is debatable whether this opposition can be sustained through the rule of law. The goal of this policy should be to protect both, the organization as well as the person involved in the presence of any conflict or futility. Rules have to be created to avoid conflict, “Opt wrote in the note.

Is the commercial part of Virat Kohli equal to the conflict of interest?

Come to think of it, even Indian captain Virat Kohli has a conflict in his squad. His manager is looking after the commercial interests of the other cricketers on the team and the company that is doing it is not willing to admit that the captain has a dispute. Thus, each case should be studied individually.

Therefore, Opt suggested that the conflict used for convenience is not correct and suggested that exposing conflicts is essential to playing cricket and why not? When everyone has to do with cricket, it’s all about revealing things, why players can’t do that. The Lodha Committee was formed to disarm the game due to the corruption of these cricketers. “Conflicts of interest should not be about ‘making a mistake’ towards him, but when a person tries to influence the decision or outcome to protect his or her relationship, thereby damaging the company, it becomes a problem,” the Opt said in the draft Never seen the light of day – members of the BCCI’s general organization who are clear of their own conflicts Thank you for the promise.

Recently uploaded and approved by the Supreme Court Conflict Rules, board officials are convinced the BCCI’s top council will fail to disclose any existing or potential events that could result in disciplinary hearings. The approved constitution contains trackable conflicts and non-trackable conflicts, which were also talked about removal. The board had a similar outline for dealing with disputes.

“The most important point of a conflict policy is to expedite the conflict and discuss the same outcome with the person or authority concerned. This is the most important test to resolve the dispute. Rules should only act as basic parameters but beyond the rules Can be, so on a case-to-case basis There should be a system capable of identifying and addressing the conflict, “Apt recently said, referring to the role of the Ombudsman.

Apt duly suggested that one of the purposes of the conflict rules, forming a three-member working group to keep the conflict out of the game, should be to support the accusation, imposing a penalty for false accusations to define conflict between friends. “Instead of defining them as proximal, a broader definition of” such as a close personal relationship exists or length of existence) can be investigated to decide the conflict, if any, “the legal note said.
