BCCI Appoints Hemang Amin as Interim Chief
GUWAHATI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has appointed Hemang Amin as the Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Cricket Board after accepting Rahul Johri’s resignation on July 11.
Amin, who is presently the Chief Operations Officer (COO) of the Indian Premier League (IPL), was appointed for the post by office-bearers of BCCI as a constitutional requirement.
Amin’s efforts had been lauded by many for ensuring a hassle-free league amidst the 2019 General Elections as all franchises got a chance to host their home matches at their bases, unlike the 2014 and 2009 IPL tournaments which had to be partially shifted outside the country due to elections.
The IPL CEO is now occupied with this year’s IPL which has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is expected to be held overseas due to the current scenario in India.
Amin was the Assistant General Manager – Finance, Commercial & Events at BCCI, and was recognized for successfully handling the management and operations of the VIVO IPL prior to his appointment as COO of IPL. He has been with BCCI for the past decade.
