BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary has expressed his displeasure over CEO Rahul Johri allowing the publication of an advertisement for the post of 'Team Manager' for the Indian women's cricket team on his name without his consent. The general convention in BCCI is that for any cricketing appointment notification, the circular needs to be approved by the honorary general secretary.

It has been learnt that Johri on November 28 had sent an email to members intimating that "as per decision taken by Committee of Administrators (COA) during a meeting on October 24 and 25, the advertisement for the position of Team Manager for the Indian Women's team inviting application will be uploaded on BCCI website today." When Chaudhary found out that an advertisement was being issued, he shot off a terse letter to Johri. Chaudhary wrote: "I am surprised at this. I was in the office [Cricket centre] a day before [November 27] and no one mentioned of it [advertisement] and an advertisement in my name has already been uploaded with me not having had even a look at it. Wonder what was the tearing hurry."

The question posed by Chaudhary is not off the mark as Indian senior women's team's next assignment is only in February. Johri did not revert back when asked for a reaction on this issue.
