All officers will be elected unopposed
Along with Roger Binny as the chairman, Rajeev Shukla as the vice-president, Jay Shah as the secretary, Ashish Shelar as the treasurer, Devajit Saikia as the joint secretary and Arun Dhumal as the IPL chairman. Board members will meet annually to discuss whether BCCI should field its candidate for the post of ICC chairman or support current chairman Grek Barkley for another term.
Indian contender for the post of ICC chairman?
The last date for nominations for the post of ICC chairman is Thursday, October 20. Recently, Sourav Ganguly's name was discussed for the post of ICC chairman, but the final seal has not been taken yet. Meanwhile, news came that Ganguly would file his nomination for the post of President of Cricket Association of Bengal. Now it remains to be seen whether the name of the former Indian captain is considered or not. If reports are to be believed, it is certain that Jay Shah will represent India in the ICC Board meeting.
Women's IPL and auction will also be discussed
Arun Dhumal will chair the meeting of the newly formed IPL Governing Council after he officially becomes the IPL chairman on Tuesday. In this, the date of IPL auction will be decided and there will also be a discussion about the first women's IPL, which the board wants to organize in March before the IPL.
