The Indian Premier League (IPL) Chief Operating Officer Hemang Amin will now be the interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI). The Indian cricket board is yet to make the announcement official but according to the sources, BCCI secretary Jay Shah has informed the development to the member states and its affiliates via an internal email.
The appointment of Amin is just for the interim period after the position of CEO was vacated by Rahul Johri. According to the sources, BCCI will finalize the next CEO of the board in next 8-12 months.
BCCI appoints IPL COO Hemang Amin as interim CEO of the board
Amin has been with board since 2010. Amin joined the IPL operations team in June 2010. He was appointed the COO soon after Sundar Raman resigned in November 2015. Before that Amin had worked in Bombay Stock Exchange and Deutsche Bank.
Amin’s first task would be to conduct very crucial BCCI’S Apex Committee meeting on July 17th. The meeting is likely to decide the fate of IPL 2020 season along with the way forward on the restart of the Indian cricket amid Covid19 crisis.
Other than this, Amin will also have to walk the thin line with the International Cricket Council (ICC) when it comes to getting the tax sops for organizing the next year’s T20 World Cup.
