BCCI to examine ‘conflict of interest’ allegations against Virat Kohli

BCCI will be examining the conflict of interest allegations against Indian captain Virat Kohli, BCCI ethics officer DK Jain has confirmed while speaking with PTI.

Earlier, Sanjeev Gupta had levelled charges against Virat Kohli on how he is both the captain of the Indian cricket team as well as the director of Conerstone Venture Partners. The company in question manages several Indian players such as KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant amongst others.

The complaint was filed on July 4 by Sanjeev Gupta, who is a member of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association. Gupta had written a mail to BCCI ethics officer-cum-ombudsman Justice (retd) DK Jain, as well as numerous BCCI executives such as BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and CEO Rahul Johri. In the complaint, Gupta had claimed that Virat Kohli violates the BCCI constitution which prohibits an individual from holding multiple positions.

Gupta said that Virat Kohli serves as one of the directors of Cornerstone Venture Partners LLP and Virat Kohli Sports LLP with his co-directors — Amit Arun Sajdeh and Binoy Bharat Khimji also being a part of the former. Gupta claims that Virat Kohli does not have a role in the talent management company of Cornerstone Sport and Entertainment Private Limited.
