Mumbai, Nov 3: The BCCI on Tuesday accepted the resigtion of Indian Premier League (IPL) Chief Operating Officer (COO) Sundar Raman, under investigation for alleged wrongdoing in the 2013 match fixing and betting scandal.
“The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday accepted Mr. Sundar Raman’s resigtion from the post of Chief Operating Officer of the Indian Premier League (IPL),” a BCCI statement said.
Raman was one of those med in the Lodha Committee report on the IPL scam, which questioned his role in the scandal. He was at the helm of IPL affairs when the scandal broke. He took his position in the league’s iugural season in 2008.
Raman is believed to have met BCCI chief Shashank Manohar in gpur on Monday and submitted his resigtion, which was accepted. The development comes after Manohar had earlier criticised the board’s decision to retain Raman as the COO despite his being under the scanner. IANS
