The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) GM KVP Rao has been asked to leave and Rao thanked the board for the opportunity to contribute to the gentleman’s game in the country. He also said it was the best day of his life as the termination will provide him with ample opportunities to develop his professional skills elsewhere. In an email to state associations to which ANI has access, Rao wrote, “This email is to inform you that BCCI has decided to end my employment on December 22, 2020, the best day of my life, as this termination will provide me with sufficient opportunities to develop my professional skills elsewhere. “
He also thanked the BCCI state associations for their help in organizing domestic games, including the 2018/19 season in which more than 2000 games were played.
“I have been a beneficiary of the unwavering support of the office holders and the employees of the state associations, who have really come a long way to successfully carry out every assignment given to me. Delivering a successful 2018-19 domestic season , more than 2000 games, without the support of the state associations, unimaginable and almost impossible, ‘he continued.
He went on to write how he had always tried to be honest about the job he had been handed. “I tried to be very honest with my work and I am proud to be able to contribute, in whatever way, to managing the assignments given to me by the BCCI, including two ICC World Cups hosted by India in 2013 (Women’s World Cup) and 2016 (ICC T20 World Cup Men and Women) as Tournament Operations Manager. Needless to say that both events have been very successful and professional. I have learned a lot in these 10 years and that will future come in handy. ”he said.
