The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has appointed IPL chief operating officer Hemang Amin as the interim chief executive officer (CEO).

However, once the BCCI got back its administration, Johri was increasingly marginalised with his domain of work, including matters related to ICC, being handled by secretary Jay Shah. His words were, with a smile on his face, "Sincere, competent, has the best interests of BCCI at heart and also writes his own emails".

Amin is the IPL COO and had played a major role in deciding on doing away with the opening ceremony previous year and rather donate the fund to the Pulwama martyrs' families.

According to various media reports, the Apex Council will be informed about the criteria the new CEO needs to meet during the meeting on July 17. The decision was made by the office-bearers of the BCCI yesterday as the CEO post is a constitutional requirement.

The cricket board is expected to appoint a new CEO in the next two months. The board will discuss the appointment of the new CEO, the advertisement will be given and applications will be invited for the post in the coming days. In the meanwhile, it has been learnt that the BCCI will start looking for a full-time CEO.

Johri was appointed as the BCCI CEO in 2016 when Shashank Manohar was the body's president. The pay package is also linked to the revenue the BCCI earns.
