In a big relief for Indian cricket legend Rahul Dravid, BCCI ethics officer DK Jain on Thursday dismissed the conflict of interest complaint against the former India captain, saying it was "bereft of any merit".
The hearing in the alleged conflict of interest case involving Indian cricketing great Rahul Dravid concluded on Tuesday with BCCI Ethics Officer DK Jain saying "his order can be expected soon".
Rahul Dravid's 'leave without pay' reason not enough to evade conflict of interest issue, says BCCI ethics officer DK Jain
Dravid is employed as a vice-president by India Cements, the company that owns IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, and thus he attracts provisions of the conflict of interest rules with his role at the NCA.
Rahul Dravid is yet to take charge of the NCA since he is a paid employee with India Cements which could be a conflict of interest
As MS Dhoni's dancing video goes viral, here's a look at how Indian cricket icon has waltzed his way to financial security for life and beyond
As successful as he is on the cricketing ground, Dhoni has quite the presence outside the oval, and is perhaps going all out in securing himself financially after hanging up his boots.
Last month, Adani Enterprises had filed a plea in the Bombay High Court seeking quashing of all LRs against its firms that are under probe for alleged over-invoicing of Indonesian coal imports.

IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings on Thursday moved the Madras High Court challenging the order of Justice Lodha Committee suspending it from Indian Premier League over the 2013 betting scam involving its top official Gurunath Meiyappan.
Shares of India Cements plunged 6 percent after the Supreme Court panel probing the IPL spot fixing scandal suspended the company from the league for two years. So effectively India Cements Ltd, which is the promoter of the Chennai Super Kings, cannot be associated with the IPL for the next 2 years.

Embattled Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President N Srinivasan-led India Cements will transfer its Indian Premier League (IPL) team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to a new subsidiary.

The SC also served a directive to BCCI to hold its AGM and elections within six weeks of the judgement.
Srinivasan was barred by the Supreme Court Jan 22 from contesting the BCCI elections as long as he was involved in a "conflict of interest" situation.
