The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is gearing up for its 92nd Annual General Meeting (AGM), set to be held in Goa on September 25. The AGM will play host to crucial decisions, with the appointment of three new members to the Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council taking center stage.
BCCI Secretary Jay Shah issued an 18-point agenda for the AGM, with the top items being:
B. Election and induction of 2 (two) representatives of the General Body into the Governing Council of the IPL.
C. Induction of 1 (one) representative of the Indian Cricketers’ Association into the Governing Council of the IPL.
While the current Governing Council includes Arun Singh Dhumal (chairman), Avishek Dalmiya (member), and Pragyan Ojha (representative from the Indian Cricketers’ Association), it remains uncertain whether these members will continue in their roles or if new inductees will be appointed.
Notably, no explicit mention of changes to the senior men’s selection committee is made in the agenda. However, a point addressing the reconstitution of the selection committee can be discussed under item K, which pertains to the appointment of Cricket Committees and Standing Committees.
Additionally, the AGM will address the appointment of the BCCI representative to international cricket bodies such as the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), with Jay Shah expected to be nominated for these positions. The AGM’s agenda also includes the appointment of the Ombudsman and Ethics Officer.
While crucial matters often fall under an item labeled “Consideration of any business that the President may deem necessary to include in the agenda” (item Q), the AGM is poised to chart the course of Indian cricket administration, with 38 general body members duly notified about the forthcoming meeting.
