New Delhi: Indian women cricket team’s former Indian Captain Shantha Rangaswamy has stepped down from her position as a member of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) and director of the Indian Cricketers Association (ICA) after being served a Conflict of Interest notice by BCCI Ethics Officer DK Jain.
“It was an honour to be on the CAC committee. It will be tough to find suitable former cricketers for any administrative role in the current scenario (conflict of interest). I would have resigned anyway before the elections were held. So it was a matter of time,” she added.
Ms. Rangaswami, who was a member of the CAC along with Kapil Dev and Anshuman Gaekwad, sent her resignation letter to the Committee of Administrators (CoA) and the Board’s CEO, Rahul Johri vial mail in the early hours.
Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) life member Sanjiv Gupta had filled the complaint against the trio who picked Ravi Shastri as the head coach in August. In the complaint, Mr. Gupta has claimed that the CAC members don multiple cricketing roles. Shantha Rangaswamy played for India from 1976 to 1991, captaining the side in 8 matches; under her captaincy, Indian women cricket team recorded first ever Test match win which was against West Indies in 1976.
