Manohar takes over as cricket board chief, Srinivasan new secretarySeptember 26th, 2008 - 11:26 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Sep 26 (IANS) No bickering over representation of states or legal wrangling will mar the Annual General Meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, slated for Saturday, when Shashank Manohar takes over as the BCCI president from Sharad Pawar. Unlike in the past when such ugly episodes dogged the BCCI, there is little speculation over the new office-bearers or the national selectors, thanks to the streamlining of the process now.
There is a process of nominations, withdrawals and election if need be. With the decentralisation of the board’s functioning, the zones nominate the various officials on a rotation. Only the selection committee is finalized by the Board president in consultation with the zonal representatives. The result is unanimous election.
The AGM itself has fixed agenda with various committees presenting their reports, budgeting of tours and a progress report of the various teams.
Sharad Pawar will be laying down office as Board president after three years and he is to be succeeded by Shashank Manohar of the Vidarbha Cricket Association who has been functioning as president-elect for a few months now.
Pawar is now the president-elect of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and he will succeed David Morgan of the England and Wales Cricket Board in 2010 just when the subcontinent will be getting ready to host the next World Cup.
N. Srinivasan of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association will relinquish his charge as treasurer to take over as the new secretary from Niranjan Shah. Punjab’s M. P. Pandove will be the new treasurer, though it was widely expected that he would be the secretary after serving as joint secretary for three years.
Sanjay Jagdale, secretary of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association, will be the new joint secretary.
The five vice-presidents will be: Arun Jaitley (North), Lalit Modi (Central), Chirayu Amin (West), Shivlal Yadav (South) and Arindam Ganguly (East).
