The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), held in Mumbai on Monday, 9 November, has seen a slew of changes brought in to the board, under the stewardship of new president Shashank Manohar.
The board withdrew its support to N Srinivasan as the chairman of BCCI, and recommended the name of Shashank Manohar in his place. Here are some of the other major decisions taken at the meeting in Mumbai:
- A conflict of interest resolution has been passed by the board.
- Roger Binny removed from BCCI's senior selection panel due to conflict of interest, as son Stuart Binny is part of the Indian national team. Rajinder Singh Hans also removed from the panel.
- Team India director Ravi Shastri removed from the IPL Governing Council.
- Sourav Ganguly named as the new chairman of the BCCI Technical Committee. He replaces Anil Kumble as the head of the committee.
- Rajeev Shukla retained as the chairman of IPL.
- Visakhapatnam, Ranchi, Indore, Pune and Rajkot announced as five new Test venues.
On the other hand, Gagan Khoda and MSK Prasad have been added as the new members in the selection committee following the ouster of Binny and Hans.
It is also being speculated that the board may dissolve the advisory committee that was created by late president Jagmohan Dalmiya earlier this year. Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman are currently part of the committee.
