Managing the media

It's as predictable as Christmas -- every time there is a crisis connected with the team, the BCCI announces the imminent appointment of a media manager.
Last time round, they actually appointed one -- Amrit Mathur, whose columns you can read in Sportstar. As of the Pakistan tour of India earlier this year, my impression is Mathur was still media manager -- I remember talking to him, in Bangalore, when the officials acted funny about giving my colleague in Rediff, Deepti Patwardhan, access to the ground.
So either Mathur has been dumped/quit between then and now, or Mahindra doesn't know the board already has a media manager -- not sure which.
