The BCCI chief executive officer Rahul Johri is set to leave the board after his resignation got accepted on 9 July (Thursday). There was no word on acceptance of resignation from the BCCI board members, yet the final decision is intact after they last received Johri’s resignation letter on December 27.
A BCCI veteran told PTI on the condition of anonymity that “Rahul Johri’s resignation has been accepted. He was earlier given an extension till April 30 but this time it has been accepted.”
However the reasons for sudden acceptance of his resignation from the BCCI are not known. Rahul Johri has joined the BCCI in 2016. He resigned after the Supreme Court appointed the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that made way for Sourav Ganguly to become president of the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI).
There was a decision made previously to continue Johri on the board until his contract expires in 2021. As a sudden revoke, Johri had his resignation accepted
