New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is seeking a new general manager of cricket operations after M.V. Sridhar’s departure and the applicant should either be a cricket expert or someone who has played at the highest level.

The BCCI invited applications for GM, cricket operations on Monday with the deadline for submission being 23 October.

“A thorough understanding of the game or playing experience at the highest level," that is one of the skills required to be eligible for the role.
