Chennai Super Kings have appointed former Indian Premier League chief operating officer (COO) Sundar Raman as a consultant ahead of the IPL 2021.
Sundar Raman, who is a consultant with Reliance Industries, will work alongside CSK's chief executive officer (CEO) KS Viswanathan.
Addressing the same, the source confirmed Raman’s appointment and said that the latter will look after the commercial and marketing strategies of the IPL franchise.
"Yes, Sundar Raman will come in as a consultant and will handle the commercial and marketing strategies of CSK," The sources said, adding that an official announcement would be made soon.
Sundar Raman had earlier worked with former BCCI President and ICC chairman N Srinivasan during the latter's tenure as BCCI chief and his position at ICC.
However, amid an investigation into the 2013 spot-fixing scandal, Sundar Raman resigned as the IPL COO in 2015.
CSK failed to qualify for the playoffs last season and finished IPL 2020 with 6 wins and 8 losses, failing to qualify for the playoffs for the first time.
