BCCI set to elect new chairman for IPL.

BCCIMumbai: The BCCI is set to elect a new chairman for the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) at its 82nd Annual General Meeting scheduled on September 19.

The need to choose a new person to head the IPL takes place after present Chirayu Amin expressed his desire to step down from the post.

“Chirayu Amin wants to step down from the chairmanship of IPL because of his commitments. So a new chairman would have to be elected at the AGM. This is one of the items listed on the agenda of the meeting,” sources told PTI.

Amin took over the reins when the IPL was shocked by the Lalit Modi quarrel that saw the then prime mover of the league being sacked at the end of the 3rd season in 2010.

The sign are that Rajiv Shukla, presently vice president from the Central Zone, would become the new chief of this important sub-committee of the BCCI.

However, the appointment of a CEO, as considered in the media, to run the Board’s affairs is not a listed item on the agenda of the meeting which would pass the annual accounts and annual report of the secretary.

The appointment of the fresh selection committees including the senior panel, is also one of the important items on the agenda of the meeting with the election of various office bearers.
