Sourav Ganguly and the BCCI have not responded to complaints of conflict of interest despite being asked to file their replies, the Indian Cricket Board's Ombudsman AP Shah has said in a mail to its President Shashank Manohar.
The mail, in a separate query, has also asked for "rules/regulations/ guidelines" pertaining to role and function of IPL commissioners.
The email, which was sent to Manohar, has also been sent to BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur, GM (Game Development) Ratnakar Shetty and Ganguly on his two email ids. The Ombudsman has asked three questions to Manohar.
1. What is the stand of the BCCI on this issue? 2. Are the rules for conflict of interest intended to be exhaustive, i.e., do the rules cover all circumstances that the BCCI conceives to be within its definition of conflict of interest? 3. Could you also make available the rules/regulations/ guidelines pertaining to the role and function of IPL commissioner?
