BCCI's new administrators sack board officials appointed by Anurag Thakur, Ajay Shirke

New Delhi: The Committee of Administrators (CoA) appointed by the Supreme Court on Monday sacked media manager Nishant Arora, along with other staff, who were earlier appointed by Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke

The four CoA representatives – ex-CAG Vinod Rai, senior banker Vikram Limaye, historian Ramchandra Guha and former India Captain Diana Edulji – took the bold move just days after their appointment.

Thakur might have been exiled from the BCCI office, but as per reports, he had a secret messenger who had been leaking key information to him since his sacking.

The accused messenger is none other than Team India’s media manager Nishant, whose recent actions have troubled the entire squad which recently defeated England in all three formats of the long series.

As per a report in DNA, two senior members of the Indian team reported the scenario to BCCI office in Mumbai, claiming Nishant has been leaking private dressing talks to former president Anurag Thakur.

“Is he (media manager) there to make things easy for us or to irritate us?” a senior Team India member asked.

“There is so much of mistrust between players about who is leaking our personal conversation to the outside world,” said the player.

“Media manager’s job is to deal with the media but this guy (Arora) is all over the place… inside dressing room, during team celebrations, in team discussions regarding playing eleven etc,” added the senior player.

Arora, who is still belived to be handling Thakur’s social media accounts, has denied all the charges and that he has not been leaking dressing room information to his former president.
