Former India stumper Saba Karim and Tufan Ghosh today assumed office as BCCI’s GM Cricket Operations and NCA Chief Operating Officer respectively.

Both Karim and Ghosh will report to BCCI CEO Rahul Johri and will be based out of Mumbai and Bengaluru respectively, a media release issued in Mumbai said.
