Ravi Thodge, member of Committee of Administrators (CoA), said that there was no Conflict of Interest in the appointment of former India cricketer Rahul Dravid as the National Cricket Academy's head.

"There is no conflict in Rahul's case. He has got a notice. We cleared his appointment, as we saw no conflict," Thodge said on Tuesday.

"If Ombudsman there (sees any conflict), we will have our response going to the Ombudsman as to why there is no conflict, he has to consider it," he added.

Earlier on August 6, Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) Ethics Officer issued a notice to Dravid as Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association member Sanjay Gupta filed a complaint against the former Indian cricketer levelling Conflict of Interest charges against him.

As per the complaint, Dravid is conflicted as he is the current NCA head and is also employed as the vice-president of India Cements group, which owns Indian Premier League franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Dravid has been given two weeks to reply on the allegations levelled against him.

Gupta had earlier filed a Conflict of Interest charge against former cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman for their dual roles. Both Tendulkar and Laxman were part of Cricket Advisory Committee and were also the mentors of their respective IPL franchises. (ANI)
