I’ve no issues with conflict of interest undertaking: Ganguly

Asserting that there is no reason to fear in signing the ‘conflict of agreement’ understanding, former India captain Sourav Ganguly said that the BCCI’s move to make cricket a clean affair should be taken in the right spirit.

After former president N Srinivasan was allowed to buy an IPL franchisee, which later sparked a major controversy, the new BCCI regime is taking some steps to improve its image.

Ganguly, who was named in the BCCI advisory committee along with Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman, has backed the BCCI in its clean-up act.

“I don’t see a problem with it because it is just a declaration that you have to give to the board,” Ganguly told media in India.

“I really don’t keep a track as to who is signed by whom. It will really be difficult for me to say anything on this. And if there is anything, I am sure the BCCI will deal with it,” said Ganguly, when asked by a TV channel about some players allegedly having a stake in player management companies.

Ganguly is also eager to see how the national team performs in different formats under two different skippers. “India have never had two captains in the past. But other teams have had it, like Australia, England, South Africa and even Sri Lanka. If you win it works, if you don’t win it doesn’t work,” he said.

He also defended India’s spin veterans Harbhajan Singh and Amit Mishra after critics panned the selectors’ move to pick the experienced duo for Test series in Sri Lanka due to the lack of young talent.

“I don’t see a problem between experienced and non-experienced, it’s about how good the person is. You only gain experience when you play,” Ganguly added.
