Former Rathour's appointment as the batting of A and U-19 team has been put on hold after his Conflict of Interest was brought to the notice of the (CoA).

Rathour was supposed to start with A assignment in Wayanad but for now his appointment has been stalled indefinitely.

Rathour is the of current India U-19 national selector and his appointment would have been a case of Conflict of Interest.

"Yes, the CoA had given a go ahead for Rathour's appointment but today Rathour gave a written declaration of his relation with Kapoor," a told on Monday.

"Now the matter was discussed with Mr and it was concluded that only an could have decided if Rathour working with U-19s during Quadrangular series would tantamount to Conflict of Interest," he said.

However with no in BCCI, it was thought Rathour's appointment would have sent out wrong signals.

"The appointment letter was not signed. Saba had only got a go ahead on the basis of Dravid's recommendation. For now, he will not be recruited in the A or U-19 set up," the official confirmed.

While India A wanted Rathour in the India A and U-19 roster, BCCI (GM Cricket Operations) did not intimate the CoA about the potential case of Conflict of Interest.
