BCCI ethics officer dismisses conflict of interest complaint against Dravid

NEW DELHI: In a big relief for Indian cricket legend Rahul Dravid, BCCI ethics officer D K Jain on Thursday dismissed the conflict of interest complaint against him, saying it was “bereft of any merit”.

“I have rejected the complaint. Rahul Dravid doesn’t have conflict of interest,” Jain told reporters after issuing the order.
