While until now, #MeToo storm had hit the journalists, politicians and Bollywood world, latest is the cricket to be taken away by the blow.

In a shocking development, Rahul Johri, serving as CEO of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) since April 2016, has been called out by a journalist and has been accused of inappropriate behaviour.

Earlier, Indian singer Chinmayi Sripaada accused Sri Lankan cricketer Lasith Malinga of assaulting a woman at a Mumbai hotel during an Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Taking it to the Twitter, Sripaada had shared a post on Twitter to narrate the alleged incident.

“I’d like to remain anonymous. A few years back when I was in Mumbai, I was looking for my friend in the hotel we were staying in. I bumped into a very famous Sri Lankan cricketer during the IPL season who said my friend was in his room,” the famous singer’s post read.

To name further, former Sri Lankan player, the 1996 World Cup winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga, had also been accused of harassment by an Indian flight attendant at a Mumbai hotel. In a detailed Facebook post, the woman said that Ranatunga, currently Sri Lanka’s Minister of Petroleum Resources Development, allegedly grabbed her by the waist. When she went to complain about the incident, she was told, “It is your private matter.”
