Mumbai: Soon after the Committee of Administrators (COA) announced its decision to scrap the Delhi office of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday, the Indian Cricket team's media manager Nishant Arora submitted his resignation.

It has been reported that Nishant tendered his resignation on Sunday evening after he was told to shift his base to Mumbai at Cricket House where the rest of the staff works. He had also not travelled to Hyderabad where the Indian team is scheduled to play Bangladesh in a one-off Test from February 9.

It may be mentioned that all the employees of the Delhi officer were the staff of former BCCI president Anurag Thakur who has been removed from his post by Supreme Court. Hence, the employees at the Delhi officer were also soon likely to be removed.

Speaking over the issue, COA member Diana Edulji said that they have not mentioned anyone's name but had only ordered for the closure of the office.

"We had just ordered to shut down the President's Office in Delhi and all those recruited in Delhi office will need to go. We never specifically named Nishant but if he is a Delhi Office recruit then he has to go. In case, Nishat's media manager contract is independent of it, then BCCI CEO Rahul Johri will take the final call. Nishant's replacement will also be decided by Rahul," Edulji said.

Nishant Arora was appointed the BCCI media manager 18 months back and had also travelled to several countries including Australia, US and West Indies, to name a few.
