DK Jain, the BCCI Ethics Officer, on Friday said that active or ex-players commentating on cricket could possibly be soon brought under the purview of Conflict of Interest (COI), in sync with the “one person, one post” ideology that forms the heart of Lodha reforms. The spotlight is currently on Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, who have been given two weeks to choose between their roles as TV commentators and as cricket managers in varying capacities, reports Cricbuzz.

Ganguly was recently asked to explain his dual stint as the head of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) and the advisor for Delhi Capitals, and now finds a third degree added to the equation in terms of commentary duties he’s undertaking for the 2019 World Cup. Ganguly, in addition to all these, is also a member of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC).

Laxman, on the other hand, is also a CAC member and serves as a mentor for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League.
