Amin, who used to report to Rahul Johri, has been handling operations division of IPL since 2017.
Last Thursday, BCCI accepted Rahul Johri’s resignation. Ahtough Rahul Johri resigned on December 27 last year, but the BCCI now decided to let him go and accept his resignation.
An official who is privy to the matter said that the leakage of confidential financial information caused the Johri to fall.
Amin played a role in donating funds to the families of Pulwama martyrs in exchange for the inaugural ceremony last year.
“As you might be aware, Mr. Rahul Johri who was the CEO, has resigned and is now no longer with BCCI. We have appointed Mr. Hemang Amin, COO, IPL as the interim CEO of the BCCI,” Shah wrote in an email to all the BCCI affiliates late on Monday evening.
“I request you to extend all possible co-operation to Mr. Amin in his new role.”
BCCI sources said that a new CEO will take over after nearly two months.
“Until a new CEO takes over, the board has asked Amin to handle CEO’s role for an interim period. The board will discuss on the appointment of new CEO, advertisement will be given and applications will be invited for the post in coming days. A new CEO will only take charge after nearly two months,”sources in the BCCI said.
