The International Cricket Council (ICC), on Monday (March 20), appointed Ankur Khanna as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

Khanna, who will now leave Air Asia India where he has held the post of CFO for the last one year, will start his tenure with the ICC from the end of March.

Expressing his delight after roping in Khanna, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said:

”I am delighted to welcome someone of Ankur’s pedigree to the ICC. His CV is outstanding, having provided leadership to culturally diverse teams in a number of multi-national roles. He has a proven track-record and will make a positive contribution to our senior team.”

Prior to joining the Air Asia India in April 2016, Khanna was the regional finance director at Air France.

Currently residing in Bengaluru, Khanna will now relocate to ICC Headquarters in Dubai and he sounded very excited with the development.

“This is such an exciting opportunity for me both as a professional and as a huge cricket fan. I am looking forward to joining the team in Dubai and bring my experience to benefit the ICC and the rest of the sport around the world,” an elated Khanna said.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
