BCCI assistants have been spotted leaking information to other officials and even forcing TV crew during live coverage to focus on their bosses. The Supreme Court has appointed cricket administrators to keep an eye on assistants regarding the same. According to The Indian Express, a source told that Committee of Administrators (CoA) Chairman Vinod Rai ordered executive assistants to leave halfway through the meeting of IPL governing council. Rai had also sent an email to BCCI officials regarding the same.

CaO believes official information was also leaked by the assistants but ensures that no sensitive information was leaked.

“It was thought that these executive assistants are capable of passing on crucial information. At the same time, many instances have come to light where TV crew were forced to show these assistants’ bosses on TV during live game coverage,” BCCI sources said. “Apparently, these office-bearers have also been seen telling the TV crew to show them on screen while their executive assistants lurk behind the crew to ensure that it gets done. The CaO felt that this needs to be stopped.”

A BCCI spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by The Indian Express.
