Top BCCI official resigns ahead of the general meeting

Manager CIP Raowho took care of domestic servants crickethas put in his papers

Before the general meeting (General meeting), a top official on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has resigned. The immediate reason for his resignation is unknown, but some members are attending the conclave Ahmedabad confirmed on Thursday that CIP Rao had submitted his papers. Rao took care of the domestic cricket BCCI and was apparently asked to leave.

“I don’t know the reason, but I know he resigned. I’m not sure if he quit today or some time ago, ”a senior BCCI member told Mirror from Ahmedabad.

Rao, the 55-year-old former Bihar captain, has been associated with the BCCI for about 10 years after running the Bangalore National Cricket Academy (NCA) as well as domestic cricket. His designation was Manager, and he had previously reported to the late Doctor MV Sridhar, who was General Manager, and recently to Saba Karim, who had replaced Sridhar.

Rao’s exit could be a double blow to domestic BCCI cricket as Karim is also on his final leg of employment. Karim also took care of domestic cricket and had resigned as GM a few months ago. The notice period is currently observed. “Anyway, not much domestic cricket happens. So I think the BCCI will do it, ”said the official. BCCI starts this year’s cricket from January 10th with the Mushtaq Ali Twenty20 tournament.

Rao didn’t respond to a request from Mirror.


In the meantime, the BCCI has also started the interviews for the new selectors. The Cricketer Advisory Committee (CAC), chaired by Madan Lal, conducted the interviews while this report was being submitted. The panel has received a list of 13 candidates, including Ajit Agarkar from West, who is considered the favorite to be appointed as the new chairman. Two more selectors – from the east and north – are appointed and former players such as Maninder Singh and Chetan Sharma are in the fight.
