NEW DELHI: BCCI Ethics Officer DK Jain Thursday has ruled Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman maintaining twin jobs of being Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) contributors and mentors with IPL franchises quantities to conflict of passion and the two former gamers could have to select.

While Laxman is a mentor for Sunrisers Hyderabad, Ganguly holds the similar position with the Delhi Capitals franchise besides being the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal. The order on Laxman got here Thursday while the only on Ganguly used to be passed previous.

"One person one post is the soul of Lodha committee recommendations. I have just tried to bring it out. In Sachin's (Tendulkar), the conflict of interest did not arise as he had withdrawn from CAC. But it does in Ganguly and Laxman's case and they need to decide how they would like to serve Indian cricket going forward," Jain instructed PTI.

Tendulkar is a mentor for every other IPL franchise Mumbai Indians. All the three legendary cricketers had contested the allegation of conflict of passion and Laxman had even introduced to step down from the CAC all the way through his deposition.

"I have not done anything extraordinary while passing the order on Ganguly and Laxman," Jain stated.

Jain, who used to be appointed by the Supreme Court in February, also touched relating to active gamers comparable to Robin Uthappa and Irfan Pathan doing observation at the ongoing World Cup.

He stated going purely by the spirit of Lodha suggestions, this too may well be regarded as conflict of passion.

"Based on this order there may well be court cases in opposition to active gamers also. They can now observe their mind and be ready for that situation. I've no longer barred any one (from commentating). I've best made up our minds what Conflict of Interest approach as consistent with the BCCI charter.

"It is for the gamers to suppose whether or not it applies to them or no longer. It is the primary time I've tested the principles and have given my interpretation (within the order), I don't know if it could be authorized by the Board. If any person wants to problem it he can problem it," he stated.
