"Bharat Patel, former Chairman of Proctor and Gamble is being appointed as the Honorary Advisor to the Interim Chairman of IPL, Chirayu Amin," BCCI secretary N Srinivasan said in a statement.

Incidentally, Patel was associated in setting up of the IPL in 2008 in an advisory capacity to the then chairman Lalit Modi, who has been suspended from the post on charges of financial irregularities.
