Jagmohan all set to return as BCCI boss

Jagmohan all set to return as BCCI boss
Veteran cricket administrator Jagmohan Dalmiya is all set to return as BCCI president more than a decade after he last held the top job,emerging as the consensus candidate from incumbent N Srinivasan’s camp.

The road for Dalmiya was cleared after another former president Sharad Pawar failed to get a proposer from East zone, prompting the Maratha strongman to pull out of the race ahead of Monday’s much-anticipated and much-delayed Annual General Meeting.

It has also been learnt that current board secretary Sanjay Patel will retain his post, provided he is not entangled in a contest with Pawar loyalist Anurag Thakur. The 70-year-old Dalmiya, President of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), controls two votes from East Zone and had on Saturday emerged as a front-runner for the top post since no other name was unanimously acceptable to all the units loyal to 
Srinivasan.
