Niranjan, Rajiv Shukla to replace Amin and Modi as BCCI VPs
Former Cricket Board secretary Niranjan Shah and Rajya Sabha MP Rajiv Shukla are expected to replace Chirayu Amin and suspended IPL Chairman Lalit Modi as vice-presidents from west and central zones at the 81st BCCI AGM here tomorrow.
"There will be only these two changes in the BCCI administrative set up," sources said here today ahead of the meeting. Shah represents Saurashtra, while Shukla is the President of the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association.
Existing BCCI president Shashank Manohar and secretary N Srinivasan are expected to continue in their respective posts, while the latter is well-poised to become the next president-elect to take over the reigns in September 2011, the sources said.
Srinivasan belongs to the south zone, that will take over the reins of the Board next year after the turn of central zone in the rotation policy adopted by the BCCI.
Other office bearers of the Board are also expected to be elected unopposed for another year in the 2 plus 1 system of governance adopted by the Board.
The list includes treasurer M P Pandove and joint secretary Sanjay Jagdale. All of them have completed two years in their posts and have to be re-elected for the third year. Arun Jaitley (north), N Shivlal Yadav (south) and Arindam Ganguly (east) are also set to retain their seats. All the members of the senior selection committee, headed by Krishnamachari Srikanth, are likely to be retained.
The other members are Yashpal Sharma, Surendra Bhave, Raja Venkat and Narendra Hirwani.
