MUMBAI, July 14: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has appointed IPL chief operating officer Hemang Amin as the interim chief executive officer (CEO).
The move comes only days after Rahul Johri’s resignation as the BCCI CEO was accepted.
The BCCI secretary, Jay Shah informed the affiliates in an email on Monday, Cricbuzz reported.
“As you might be aware, Mr Rahul Johri who was the CEO, has resigned and is now no longer with BCCI. We have appointed Mr Hemang Amin, COO, IPL as the interim CEO of the BCCI,” Shah wrote in an email.
“I request you to extend all possible co-operation to Mr Amin in his new role,” he added.
Johri was appointed as the BCCI CEO in 2016 when Shashank Manohar was the body’s president.
Meanwhile, the office-bearers will be looking for a full time-replacement, the process for which is likely to be decided in the upcoming Apex Council meeting on July 17.
In 2016, the board had hired a consulting agency to help appoint its first-ever CEO. However, unlike the previous time, it is understood that the board might choose to not take that route this time around and pick a suitable candidate on their own. (UNI)
