The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has accepted its chief executive officer (CEO) Rahul Johri’s resignation and he has been asked to leave office with immediate effect. Johri had tendered his resignation to BCCI secretary Jay Shah a few months ago and his tenure was supposed to end in April. However, the board decided to give him an interim extension.

Johri has been BCCI’s first CEO, appointed in 2016. “His resignation was accepted today (Thursday). He had officially handed his resignation some time ago but due to Covid-19, the board didn’t take a decision as BCCI wondered how he would find a job in these times. However, the board now has released him with immediate effect,” a top BCCI official told The Indian Express.

It’s not clear whether BCCI will appoint a new CEO in the coming days. The board is working without a chief financial officer (CFO) after the previous incumbent Santosh Rangnekar tendered his resignation just after the new BCCI dispensation took over from the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).
