The impact of the Supreme Court's interim order that no India Cements employee should perform any BCCI administrative jobs has claimed its first 'victim'. The Board has been forced to remove India's logistics manager Menon Arathi Satish, who is currently in Bangladesh for the ICC World Twenty20.

"I would like to inform all of you that Mr MA Satish (logistics manager of the Indian team) will be going back to India as soon as the replacement for him joins the Team. There has been a delay in the visa process for his replacement due to the weekend," RN Baba, media manager of the team, said in a media release.

Satish is a former Kerala cricketer and has traveled with the Indian team ever since N. Srinivasan came into power. Satish was part of the Indian squad for the ICC Champions Trophy last year too, where he assisted manger Ranjib Biswal on several fronts including keeping a check on anti-corruption activity.
