Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) owner, Vijay Mallya has resigned from his post as the Director of Royal Challengers Sports Private Limited (RCSPL). The Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise wrote to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) about Mallya's resignation.

According to sources, Russell Adams, an official from the RCB, sent an email to the IPL Governing Council regarding the current state of the role of the Director of the franchise. It has been five days since Mallya left India for the United Kingdom.

The future of the franchise was in doubt ever since the departure of the owner from India. Adams will now take over the responsibility of being the Director of RCSPL.
