The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India will take place in Mumbai on October 18. (BCCI). According to BCCI secretary Jay Shah, who spoke to the state units on Thursday night, the election for the president, vice-president, secretary, joint secretary, and treasurer will take place on that day.
A primary focus will be the choice of India’s representative to the International Cricket Council. One of the significant issues on the agenda provided to the state organizations on Thursday night is the women’s IPL.
N Srinivasan, a 77-year-old former BCCI strongman, and Sourav Ganguly, the organization’s 50-year-old president, are the two possibilities as of right now.
The agenda consists of 29 items. The Indian Cricketers’ Association will choose two delegates (a man and a woman) to serve on the Apex Council (ICA).
The state units were recently informed by BCCI President Ganguly that the Women’s IPL will begin early in 2019. Ganguly stated, “The BCCI is currently working on the eagerly anticipated women’s IPL,” in an email to state units. Early in 2019, the inaugural season is expected to start.
The BCCI will formalize the franchises and launch the media rights tendering process after it receives approval at the Annual General Meeting. Sportstar is aware that the Board has spoken to a few current IPL franchises informally, and it is thought that if they are interested in team ownership, first consideration will be given to them.
The ICC and “ICC tax concerns” will also be updated for the member units. The ICC anticipates tax reduction for the World Cup, which India will host in 2019. The BCCI top brass has already raised the matter with the union government.
In addition to this, the members will receive updates on issues about the National Cricket Academy and the infrastructural development projects the BCCI is working on in the North-Eastern region. The meeting will also cover an update on the new infrastructure subsidy policy and India’s Future Tours Program.
