The BCCI on Saturday invited applications for the designation of the General Manager and game development after Saba Karim resigned from the position last week. 

Karim’s resignation is the fourth senior position departure since Sourav Ganguly’s appointment as the President of the BCCI last October. The other three were Rahul Johri (BCCI CEO), Santosh Rangnekar (BCCI CFO) and Tufan Ghosh (NCA COO) and no applications for these posts have been released yet. 

The BCCI was quick to open the fill Karim’s place with a replacement as they have released the application with a deadline of August 7 until 6 PM in the evening. The applicants will be shortlisted based on the experiences and virtual interviews will be fixed from the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai. 

The position would require to comply with the policies of the Board and also help in “supporting the CEO to deliver on BCCI’s vision and strategy” along with “compliance of match playing regulations, standards of venues, and administration of the Domestic Tours Program”, followed by other responsibilities. 

Karim was appointed as the General secretary in 2017 and his responsibilities were to look after the domestic and women’s cricket. 

Even the uncertainty is also taking shape on the tenure of Sourav Ganguly and BCCI secretary Jay Shah who are due to finish their interim periods. But the BCCI had filed a plea in the court for some changes in the constitution that will allow both Ganguly and Shah to continue with their respective tenures.
