BCCI calls SGM to elect new prez on May 22
Goa Cricket Association General Secretary Vinod Phadke said that an SGM will be held in Mumbai on May 22 and the only agenda of the meeting would be election of a new president.
“Yes, we have the SGM on May 22 in Mumbai. The only agenda is the election of the president,” said Phadke. Manohar’s exit from the top post on May 10, barely seven months into his tenure, has necessitated the election of the new chief of the world’s richest and most powerful cricket body. He was elected as ICC’s first independent chairman on May 12.
As per BCCI rules, a SGM has to be convened within 15 days, apprising the members of the current situation. It is the prerogative of secretary Anurag Thakur to call such a meeting. According to sources, Thakur is being tipped to take over the hot seat. IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla is also in the running.
