Former India wicketkeeper Saba Karim has been asked to resign from his post as a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) General manager – Cricket Operations. The 52-year-old Karim, who played one Test and 34 ODIs for India, was appointed by the BCCI in December 2017.
BCCI is yet to give out a formal statement on the matter but we understand that it was not happy and satisfied with Karim’s planning for domestic cricket.
“Yes, he has been asked to resign. One of the reasons for that is that he was not able to prepare any tangible action plan for domestic cricket (in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic),” a BCCI source told PTI. Looking at the rising Covid-19 cases in India, international cricket seems unlikely to resume till December.
The Board’s Chief Financial Officer Santosh Rangnekar had also put down his papers last year after the new office-bearers, headed by former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, took charge.
