BCCI AGM: State units to meet on Oct 13
Pune, October 11
All the affiliated units of BCCI will finalise the names of their new office-bearers in an “informal meeting” in Mumbai, which is also likely to be attended by former administrators.
The new office-bearers will take charge after the BCCI’s Annual General Meeting on October 23. It is learnt that former BCCI president and current Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur’s suggestions on deciding the names of the office-bearers will be taken up by the board members.Five state units — Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Manipur — are barred from the AGM are all but certain to move court. But the other units are keen to have the AGM as quickly as possible, in order to take over BCCI’s functioning from the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators.
Some of the key faces for various posts will be Gujarat’s Jay Shah (son of Union Home Minister Amit Shah), former India captain and Cricket Association of Bengal president Sourav Ganguly, and former Test player and Karnataka nominee Brijesh Patel. One of the younger faces in fray is Himachal Pradesh’s Arun Dhumal, the younger brother of Anurag Thakur. — PTI
