Former Indian Wicketkeeper Saba Karim has resigned from his post as the general manager of cricket operation in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The reason for his resignation is not known yet. However, it is said that the BCCI wanted to work with a new set of professionals.
Syed Saba Karim played 1 Test and 34 ODIs for the country. Because of an eye injury during a match against Bangladesh, Saba’s career was stopped. He got elected as a national selector in September 2012. After 5 years BCCI appointed him as a General Manager in December 2017.
The major role of Karim was the proper functioning of domestic cricket. To appoint Rahul Dravid as the head of the National Cricket Academy was also the idea of Karim.
“We have received his resignation; he will serve his notice period. The board will lookout for a new GM in Cricket operation. The Apex Council has given powers to office bearers to fill up the post,” a board official said.
Earlier this month, Rahul Johri, BCCI’s CEO also resigned from his post.
