Indian Premier League Chief Operating Officer (COO) Sundar Raman has resigned from his position, putting an end to the intense speculation over his future in the wake of the change of regime in the BCCI.

The BCCI has accepted Raman’s resignation. It has been learnt that was asked by BCCI president Shashank Manohar to put in his papers by October 31.

There was no official word from the BCCI or any press release on Raman’s resignation.

“Yes, Sundar Raman has resigned. I can confirm that,” BCCI chief administrative officer (CAO) told PTI .

Acccording to a top source, Raman met BCCI president Shashank Manohar in Nagpur on Monday and submitted his resignation.

Soon after taking charge, Manohar had expressed his displeasure over the BCCI’s decision to retain Raman after his name cropped up in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal.

In December last year when the Supreme Court made certain parts of the Mudgal Committee report public, Raman was decreed to have been ‘in touch with a contact of a bookmaker eight times during the last IPL season’. The Mudgal Committee in its report had observed that Raman’s role should be further investigated.
