The Indian cricket board appointed its IPL chief operating officer Hemang Amin as the interim CEO, days after relieving Rahul Johri from his services as CEO. The BCCI is expected to get a new CEO in the next two months. Amin is the current IPL COO and is reportedly commands immense respect within the setup for his hard work. He used to report to Johri, has been handling operations division of IPL since 2017.
“The right man for this charge. To be very honest his contribution to the BCCI has been miles ahead of Johri and he did the real work for most of the commercial deals of the BCCI,” IANS quoted an unnamed BCCI functionary as saying.
A former office bearer and Amin’s ex-colleague also praised Amin. “Sincere, competent, has the best interests of BCCI at heart and also writes his own emails,” he said.
Amin reportedly played a major role in doing away with the IPL opening ceremony last year.
Meanwhile, Johri had sent his resignation last December which BCCI accepted on Thursday, asking him to leave via email. Allegations of sexual harassment and leak of financial information may have played a major role in his exit from the board.
“Until a new CEO takes over, the board has asked Amin to handle CEO’s role for an interim period. The board will discuss on the appointment of new CEO, advertisement will be given and applications will be invited for the post in coming days. A new CEO will only take charge after nearly two months,” sources in the BCCI said.
