Virat Kohli to be investigated by BCCI over Conflict of Interestcharge

In his communication to the ombudsman under the heading “Complaint under BCCI Rule 39(2)(b) against Shri Virat Kohli Breaching BCCI Rule 38(4)”, Gupta accused Kohli of occupying two post First as a “player” and second as a “contractual entity”.

“Virat Kohli is occupying two posts at a time in blatant violation to BCCI Rule 38(4) approved by the Supreme Court of India. As such, he must relinquish his one post at once,” stated Gupta.

“I humbly solicit Learned Ethics Officer to forthwith pass the order directing Shri Virat Kohli to give away one of his post, at once, in compliance to BCCI constitution dated 21.08.18 Rule Number 38(4),” Gupta stated.

The documents which were submitted along with the complaint show Kohli is a ‘designated partner’ of Cornerstone Venture Partners Llp, with Amit Arun Sajdeh and Binoy Bharat Khimji. Reportedly, this company is a sister concern of Cornerstone, which manages sportspersons including India cricketers KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Rishabh Pant, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Shubman Gill and Kohli himself. Sajdeh and Khimji are in the management of Cornerstone, with two others.

“It has reached the BCCI office and I will examine the complaint before deciding whether to issue a notice (to the respondent, Kohli in this case). We receive many complaints. Not all of them are maintainable. I have to go through this one before deciding if action should be taken or not,” Ethics Officer and Ombudsman, Justice Jain told the media.
