New Delhi: Former India captain Anil Kumble on Monday, resigned as the chairman of the National Cricket Academy (NCA). While conflict of interest was seen as a possible reason that left Kumble 'with no choice,' NDTV has learnt that one of his proposals related to injury management was turned down by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
According to reliable sources in NCA, Kumble required a software program for injury management but his proposal was turned down by BCCI. While the official reason for rejecting the proposal was clarified to Kumble as high expenses as it would have to be developed by companies like Infosys, it is learnt that BCCI suspected Kumble to personally benefit from any such deal. The same sources say that the Indian board calculated that there could be chances of Kumble charging a commission.
