Dalmiya, Dhumal Get Extension Till IPL 2024 For IPL GC, Decision On Salil Ankola After World Cup 2023

In a significant turn of events for Indian cricket and the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) held in Goa on Monday witnessed key figures retaining their positions in the IPL governing council.

Former CAB president Avishek Dalmiya and the current IPL chairman Arun Singh Dhumal emerged victorious, securing their seats in the IPL governing council. Their re-elections mark a pivotal moment in the future of Indian cricket and the IPL.

Amidst the AGM discussions, one name that stirred up speculation was Salil Ankola. There were concerns that Ankola might not continue as a selector due to the presence of two candidates from the West zone. The selector’s role is crucial in shaping the future of the Indian cricket team, and Ankola’s potential departure raised eyebrows.

The AGM also provided insights into the financial prowess of the BCCI. Members were apprised of the board’s astounding achievement of generating more than 38% of the annual revenue of the International Cricket Council (ICC). Additionally, the BCCI’s staggering earnings of approximately ₹67 crore per match from media rights during the upcoming cycle of bilateral series left attendees astounded.

“All routine decisions happened. The list of names for the cricket committees and the sub-committees will be prepared by the office bearers as entrusted by the House. As far as IPL GC is concerned, IPL chairman Arun Dhumal and Avishek Dalmiya were supposed to be elected and it happened on expected lines,” a state unit representative told PTI.

The AGM saw the enactment of several routine decisions. Notably, the IPL Governing Council welcomed Arun Dhumal and Avishek Dalmiya, as expected. Their re-elections were met with no surprises, reinforcing the stability of the IPL’s leadership.

The AGM also extended the tenure of the Ombudsman-cum-Ethics Officer, ensuring his continued service until June 2024. This decision secures the consistency and ethical standards within the BCCI.

While the AGM addressed many aspects of cricket administration, one notable change was Pragyan Ojha’s departure as the Indian Cricketers’ Association’s (ICA) representative in the Apex Council. This move signifies the ICA’s upcoming elections, which will determine the association’s new representative.

In the dynamic world of cricket administration, every decision and appointment carries weight. As the BCCI charts its course for the future, the AGM outcomes indicate a blend of stability and potential shifts in the cricketing landscape. The journey continues, and cricket fans eagerly await the unfolding of these developments on the field.
