New Delhi: Former Proctor & Gamble chairman Bharat Patel will join the Indian Premier League (IPL) as an advisor to interim chairman Chirayu Amin, the Cricket Board said on Tuesday.
“Bharat Patel, former Chairman of Proctor and Gamble is being appointed as the Honorary Advisor to the Interim Chairman of IPL, Chirayu Amin,” BCCI secretary N Srinivasan said in a statement.
Incidentally, Patel was associated in setting up of the IPL in 2008 in an advisory capacity to the then chairman Lalit Modi, who has been suspended from the post on charges of financial irregularities.
This new appointment will have to be ratified in next month’s IPL Governing Council meeting and it is learnt that Amin proposed Patel’s name for the job.
Since Modi’s suspension, Amin is looking into the series of allegations levelled against the suspended IPL commissioner while cricketing issues pertaining to the Twenty20 league has been left to former India captains Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri.
