He has taken this step to focus on ‘professional and personal commitments’.
Roopa took over as TNCA president in September 2019, becoming the first woman to head a state cricket association in India.
TNCA Secretary RS Ramaswamy said, “Roopa Gurunath has resigned as the President of Tamil Nadu Cricket Association. He has taken this step to focus on personal commitments. Roopa Gurunath is a Whole Time Director in India Cements Limited and under her leadership, India Cements has grown to become a leader in its field.
Interestingly, in June this year, a report by former BCCI Ethics Officer and Ombudsman Judge (Retd) DK Jain found her potentially guilty of ‘conflict of interest’ as she was an integral part of India Cements. This company is the owner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) team Chennai Super Kings.
Roopa, on his part, thanked the Apex Council, office bearers and members of TNCA for their continued support during his tenure and said, “It is a true honor for me to serve as the President of one of the most prestigious cricket associations. Is.”
“I take this opportunity to thank all the Apex Council members, players, staff, TNCA members from cities and districts, friends and family for their support during my tenure,” she said.
