Ajay Shirke likely to continue as BCCI secretary


MUMBAI: Almost a year after he was supplanted as the ICC administrator, talks are picking up force that TNCA president N Srinivasan could come back to the game's administering body. Despite the fact that it couldn't be affirmed, it has developed that the previous BCCI manager stays one of the leaders to be named as the board's illustrative on the ICC's governing body.

 It was learnt that the designation of Srinivasan is being sponsored by current BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke – who is prone to be re-chosen for the post amid the 87th AGM in Mumbai on Wednesday. The BCCI big shots had gone by Srinivasan not long ago and the meeting has ended up being a distinct advantage.

With president Thakur and Shirke and other key authorities of the board slated to go to the celebratory supper on the event of India's historic point 500th Test in Kanpur on Wednesday night, the yearly meeting, which will start at 11 am, may not keep going too long. Getting to Kanpur from Mumbai isn't simple and consequently most individuals might want the meeting to be short. In the course of the most recent few days, top board authorities have saved no words in scrutinizing Manohar, with Thakur notwithstanding saying that "he (Manohar) surrendered a sinking ship for his ICC desires".

 The resentment against the previous BCCI boss is he hasn't helped his past association in handling the Lodha emergency, and is denying India its due in the ICC incomes by murdering the 'Huge Three' recipe. There are reports that ex-ICC and board boss, and current Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) president, Sharad Pawar, who facilitated a pre-AGM supper for every one of the individuals on Tuesday, might be requested that convince the Vidarbha strongman to be more "agreeable" with the board.

 At the AGM, the BCCI is set to choose its delegates for the ICC gatherings, who are prone to be Thakur and Shirke. With the Lodha Committee proposals hanging over its head, the meeting may very well turn out to be a soggy squib, unless the top mandarins keep on defying the board and take a couple significant choices. The decision of the secretary now is a simple custom as the board on Tuesday said that it hasn't got whatever other designation to challenge Shirke.

The race for the secretary's post had been made straightforward, with equity PB Sawant, a resigned SC judge, disregarding the whole procedure. Shirke has been in the employment since May 22 after Thakur got to be president and Manohar quit the board. In the wake of acquainting a novel procedure with pick selectors, the board may name the new choice board as well.

The leaders for that occupation are previous India Test players Venkatesh Prasad, Nayan Mongia, Nilesh Kulkarni, Sameer Dighe and Vijay Dahiya. The Lodha Committee had coordinated on August 31 that the AGM be restricted just to "routine business concerning the previous year (2015-2016), and that any business or matters identifying with the following year (20162017) be managed simply after the selection of the Moa and Rules." The yearly meeting's thing No 6 and 7, however, are recorded as race of the secretary, and of the different councils (counting the almighty Working Committee). A source in the Lodha board made it clear that numerous BCCI authorities may need to face prison terms on the off chance that this race is to be sure led.
