Sourav Ganguly responded seriously over this issue, 'New fashion in indian cricket...conflict of interest...Best way to remain in news...god help indian cricket...Dravid Gets Conflict of Interest Notice from BCCI Ethics Officer'
Even Harbhajan Singh felt bad about the way Legendary Cricketers of Indian Cricket were treated by the BCCI: 'Really ?? Don't know where it's heading to. You can't get better person than him for indian cricket. Sending notice to these legends is like insulting them. Cricket need their services for betterment. yes god save indian cricket'.
BCCI's Ombudsman-cum-Ethics Officer Justice (Retd) DK Jain served Conflict of Interest notice to Dravid after receiving a complaint from Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjeev Gupta. A decision will be taken by the board based on Dravid's reply to the notice.
In the past, Sanjeev Gupta filed conflict of interest complaints against Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman as well.
