BCCI names IPL COO Hemang Amin as Interim CEO
Friday 24 July 2020

Earlier this week, BCCI directed Rahul Johri to resign via email. The spillage of confidential information pertaining to the sponsorship deal of the team is alleged to have been the root cause of his ouster from the board. 
On Tuesday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India [BCCI] appointed Hemang Amin as interim CEO, replacing Rahul Johri. 
Hemang is also one of the prominent office-bearers who played a pivotal role in BCCI's decision of expelling the concept of the opening ceremony in the previous edition of the IPL and thereby donating money to the Pulwama Martyrs' families.
A source close to the board, said that Hemang Amin is indeed the right man for the role, bearing in mind the contributions he has made over the last few years.
"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," the source was quoted as saying to IANS.
A former colleague of the newly appointed CEO, claimed that Hemang's honest and professional outlook will be advantageous in ensuring the board's exponential growth.
"Sincere, competent, has the best interests of BCCI at heart and also writes his own emails," the source added.
