Kapil Dev resigned from BCCI's 3-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), after Shantha Rangaswamy tendered her resignation. Anshuman Gaekwad also followed suit by sending his resignation to BCCI CEO Rahul Johri on October 2, 2019.

The three members resigned from the CAC after they received a conflict of interest notice by the BCCI ethics officer Justice (Retd) DK Jain. The notice was issued on a complaint by Sanjeev Gupta, who stated that they were a part of the committee despite being directors of players’ association.

Shantha Rangaswamy was the first to put in her resignation and Kapil Dev was quick behind with his resignation. The third member of the committee, Anshuman Gaekwad, stated that he was also ready to resign if the committee still existed.

Gaekwad stated that as per him, the ad-hoc committee was appointed only for a day to select the head coach. So, according to him, it is non-existent but he said that if it does still exist then, he will also resign if conflict question comes up. The CAC, headed by Kapil Dev, was constituted to appoint the head coaches of the Indian men’s and women’s team.

The Chief of Committee of Administrators (CoA), Vinod Rai also clarified that the CAC was only appointed for selecting the head coaches and the three members of the committee- Kapil Dev, Shantha Rangaswamy and Anshuman Gaekwad were not conflicted in their understanding. Rai had earlier stated that the CAC doesn’t exist anymore as it was just a one-time committee.  


The BCCI ethics officer, Retired Justice DK Jain had sent a notice to all the three members of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) after he received a complaint from Sanjeev Gupta.

Sanjeev Gupta, a life member of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association, had filed a complaint stating that there was a conflict of interest as all of them were directors of players’ association and still a part of the committee.

The Ethics Officers had issued a notice to all the three members of CAC, asking them to file a response by October 10.

The CAC had re-appointed Ravi Shastri as the head coach of the Indian men’s cricket team. Shastri was re-appointed on a two-year contract till the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup in India.
