For the romantic, the Indian cricket team may be fighting its way to a gallant victory on a difficult pitch in Johannesburg and KL Rahul and Manish Pandey winning mega bucks in the IPL auction, but deep inside the Board of Control for Cricket in India there are horror fights that is threatening the survival of two of its senior-most paid officials.
In a dramatic turn of events, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Board of Control for Cricket in India have filed affidavits in the Supreme Court against the BCCI treasurer’s behaviour, contending that it is affecting work in the cricket’s headquarters in Mumbai.
CEO Rahul Johri and CFO Santosh Rangnekar filed separate affidavits in the Supreme Court earlier this week. Both eloquently described how treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry’s intimidating behaviour in January and October last year had left them scarred. Johri and Rangnekar’s grievances, that clearly hint at how political clout and muscle power are at work, are complete with all emails exchanged among the officials.
