Anurag Thakur is set to be unanimously elected as the BCCI's youngest President in the Board's Special General Meeting (SGM) here on Sunday, replacing Shashank Manohar who quit the position to take up the ICC chief's job.

Thakur, who resigned as the Secretary of the Board, got the signatures of all six east zone units in his BCCI presidential nomination form as he completed the formalities in presence of former India captain and CAB president Sourav Ganguly here.

Just to show solidarity, all the six east units, Cricket Association of Bengal, Assam CA, Tripura CA, NCC and Jharkhand SCA signed his nomination papers even though the rules require only one unit to nominate the name for presidential candidate.
