BCCI CEO Rahul Johri resigns

The BCCI parted ways with its chief executive officer Rahul Johri after his long-pending resignation was accepted on Thursday.  

Johri had a five-year contract with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) since 2016. The contract is expected to expire in 2021. However, a year before, Johari stepped down from the post.

After Sourav Ganguly took charge of the board president, it was decided to cancel the post of chief executive of Johari. Because the committee headed by Sourav wanted to run the board as before. Board Chairman Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Joy Shah will be at the top of the board.

And since then Sourav Ganguly and Joy Shah have been represented all the board meetings. And so Johari decided to resign.

Johri decided to quit last December, soon after the BCCI elected a new administration lead by former India captain Sourav Ganguly. He was to originally leave in April, but continued in the job even though it wasn't clear if he had been given an extension.

Johri will be the second senior official to exit the BCCI's professional wing after Santosh Rangnekar quit as the chief financial officer last November. Rangnekar had put his papers abruptly a fortnight after Ganguly's administration was elected last October.
