Nishant Arora resigns as BCCI's media manager after alleged information leak to Anurag Thakur

The Indian cricket team’s media manager Nishant Arora has allegedly leaked details of dressing room to ex-BCCI President Anurag Thakur has rendered his resignation.

After the reports were out that, the Indian cricket team’s media manager Nishant Arora has allegedly leaked details of dressing room to ex-BCCI President Anurag Thakur has rendered his resignation.

It’s believed that Arora resigned on February 5 after he was told that he has to shift to Mumbai at Cricket House where the staff works. He also didn’t go to Hyderabad where India will play Bangladesh in a one-off Test from February 9.

Arora has been the BCCI media manager for 18 months and had been on tours to Australia, US, West Indies to name a few.

COA member Diana Edulji said that they have not named anyone but had only instructed for the closure of the office.

“We had just said that President’ s Office in Delhi should be shut down and all those recruited in Delhi office will need to go. We never named Nishant but if he is a Delhi Office recruit then he has to go. But if his media manager’s contract is independent of it, then Rahul (BCCI CEO Rahul Johri) takes a final call. Nishant’s replacement will also be decided by Rahul,” Edulji.

The Delhi office recruits were all former president Anurag Thakur’s staff and with him being removed by Supreme Court, it was imperative that they would be laid off.

According to the players, Nishant has been ‘over-indulgent’ in dressing room matters and has been reporting them ‘verbatim’ to Thakur.

The appointments and tenure of other BCCI officials will be overseen by BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.
