Zeenews Sports Bureau
New Delhi: Anil Kumble who has recently been nominated as the Chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee has clarified to accusations of conflict of interest. The former India leg-spinner has said that the post of the Chairman of ICC’s cricket committee does not clash with any of his business interests.
Kumble found himself in the midst of a similar controversy last year when two players contracted with his sports management company were selected to play in the national team. He clarified that all the positions including the ones he held in the past are honorary and they do not clash with his business interests.
He told Mid Today he was “sad “to hear the allegations. “I seriously fail to understand why people talk about only one thing- whenever somebody is trying to contribute only in honorary positions as administrators or anything.” “That’s a sad part, I am disappointed with that.”
