New Delhi, Oct 2: Kapil Dev, the former India captain, stepped down from the position of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) chief after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ethics officer DK Jain issued Conflict of Interest notices to him. Notices were also issued to two other panel members, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy.

On Sunday, former India women’s team captain Shantha Rangaswamy had resigned from the three-member ad-hoc committee.

On Saturday, the BCCI Ethics Officer had sent a notice to CAC, asking the former cricketers who picked the current India coach, to respond by October 10 to the Conflict of Interest allegations levelled against them.

Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjiv Gupta had filed the complaint against the trio who picked Ravi Shastri as head coach in August.
