Binny, 67, was elected unopposed at its AGM (Annual general Meeting) here alongside Jay Shah, who was re-elected as the secretary for a second successive term. The other office bearers who were elected unopposed included treasurer Ashish Shelar, vice-president Rajeev Shukla and joint secretary Devjit Saikia.

Binny, who played 27 Tests and 72 ODIs for India, takes charge ahead of the ODI World Cup in India next year. However, there was no discussion on the chairmanship of International Cricket Council (ICC). The next ICC chairman will be elected during the board meeting in Melbourne next month.

It is unlikely that the BCCI will nominate its own candidate for the ICC chairman’s position, with the October 20 nomination deadline approaching.

The last date for filing the nominations for the ICC top job is October 20. The ICC Board will meet from November 11-13 in Melbourne. The much-debated exit of Ganguly from the BCCI has already garnered attention not just in sporting but in the political arena too and it will be interesting to see if the former skipper is considered for the top job.

The other names doing the rounds include Sports Minister Anurag Thakur and former BCCI president N Srinivasan.
Srinivasan is eligible to contest but it remains to be seen if the BCCI wants him to throw his hat in the ring, considering his age. He is 78.

Thakur is expected to be busy during the ICC Board meet as Himachal Pradesh is going to polls in a single phase on
November 12.

Binny will replace Ganguly as the BCCI chief. Ganguly is set to return to his home state association CAB as the president for a second term.

The other BCCI office bearers, who will be elected unanimously include secretary Jay Shah, Ashish Shelar (treasurer), Rajeev Shukla (vice-president) and Devajit Saikia (joint secretary). Outgoing treasurer Arun Dhumal will be the new IPL chairman.

“It is almost certain that Jay will be India’s representative at the ICC Board meeting. But members need to decide if we want someone to become the ICC chairman or let Greg Barclay of New Zealand complete his second and final term,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

ICA Representatives

As per the agenda of the 91st AGM, two representatives of Indian Cricketers’ Association will be on the BCCI Apex Council to replace Anshuman Gaikwad and Shantha Rangaswamy.

However, they will only be elected at the ICA election from Oct 27-29. Current ICA president Ashok Malhotra and former India captain Dilip Vengsarkar are contesting to be the association’s male representative on the BCCI Apex Council.

Dhumal will chair the newly formed IPL governing council after the BCCI AGM on Tuesday. The date of the IPL auction will be decided while there will also be a discussion on the inaugural WIPL, which the Board plans to conduct before the IPL in March.

Five teams will be part of the league initially but how they will be sold could be decided on Tuesday. The BCCI could sell the teams city wise based on zones or to big cities with a solid fan base.

There will also be a discussion on the tax liability for the ODI World Cup in India next year. India could lose up to Rs 955 crore if the central government doesn’t exempt the tax surcharge on ICC for hosting the event in India.
