The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been setting major focus on the finance administration of the board in the recent times. They are trying to ensure that all the major transactions of the board are made transparent. Furthermore, a special Finance Committee has been setup for the same as well. And now, Vinay Mruthyunjaya has been appointed in the department as well.
While many might not know who he is, the fact remains in the story that he is one of the prominent faces of the cricket administration in the country. Vinay Mruthyunjaya has been working with the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) in the recent times. Now, he is set to play a key role in the Finance Committee of the BCCI as his next assignment.
The Finance Committee of the BCCI
Talking about the Finance Committee, the department of the BCCI looks after all the finance related equations. This includes the pay outs made to the players, officials, and the administrators. Also, it is expected to play a guiding role in the issues of the player contracts. The committee is headed by veteran politician and a senior member of the BCCI, Jyotiraditya Scindia.
Replacing Kasi Viswanathan
In the Finance Committee, Vinay Mruthyunjaya will be replacing another veteran administrator, Kasi Viswanathan. This was confirmed by the BCCI President CK Khanna’s mail addressed to the BCCI Secretary Amitabh Choudhary. The reason why K Viswanathan had to be replaced was the recent ruling of the Lodha Panel in relation to the Conflict of Interests.
Kasi Viswanathan has been appointed as the CEO of the Chennai Super Kings for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). With the new appointment, Viswanathan cannot hold another position in the BCCI office since it will be a conflict of interest. Hence, he had to step down from his post in the Finance Committee in order to avoid the conflict of interest as per the Rule 13 A (ii) of the Memorandum of Rules and Regulations of the BCCI.
