BCCI's anti-corruption chief resigns
Saturday 06 June 2015

BCCI's anti-corruption chief Ravi Sawani has resigned citing personal reasons. His resignation has been accepted, Board Secretary Anurag Thakur told PTI. Sawani will now serve a one month notice period.

Sawani had set up BCCI's anti-corruption unit in 2012 after his similar stint with the sport's governing body ICC. He reportedly wanted to quit in April but was asked to carry on until the end of IPL.

Neeraj Kumar, who was recently roped in as advisor to BCCI's anti-corruption unit, is tipped to replace Sawani. Kumar, a former Delhi Police commissioner, had led the spot-fixing investigations in 2013, leading to the arrests of then Rajasthan Royals players S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan. 


BCCI will pay more to boards for allowing their cricketers to play IPL
The Indian board, though, will make the payments on pro-rata basis, which will depend on the duration of the player’s availability during the season.
CoA curtails BCCI office-bearers powers severely
They will now have to seek C0A approval for travel expenses; Board will not bear expenses for any external legal advice.
