NEW DELHI: India ‘s captain Virat Kohli is encounters an inquiry into a potential conflict of interest in two business ventures over his positions.

D.K. K. Jain, an ethics officer for the Indian Cricket Control Board (BCCI), said late Sunday that a report would be examined by a member of the state association.

Sanjeev Gupta, a member of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association, alleged that Kohli ‘s different posts violate the BCCI rules that prohibit an individual from holding multiple posts.

“I have received a complaint. I will examine it and then see if the case is made out or not,” Jain was quoted as saying by the Indian media. “If yes, then I have to afford an opportunity to him (Kohli) to respond.”

Gupta said the co-directors of Kohli at Virat Kohli Sports (LLP) and Corne-rstone Venture Partners (LLP) were also directors at Cornerstone Sport and Entertainment Private Limited, a talented agency that contracts Indian cricketers and manages their branding and business interests.

Gupta had previously filed allegations over conflict of interest against Sachin Tendulkar, V.V.S. Laxman and Rahul Dravid. Based on the allegations, the three former players were given notices, but ultimately cleared.
