The BCCI AGM is scheduled for September 25 in Goa.

There may also be discussions about changing the composition of the selection committee.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Goa on September 25, with a key decision being made to appoint three new members to the Governing Council of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While it is not explicitly stated on the agenda, there may be discussions about changing the selection committee.

“Notice is hereby given that the 92nd Annual General Meeting (hereinafter referred to as AGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (“BCCI”) will be held at W Hotel – Goa on 25th September 2023, to transact the business as per the attached agenda,” said BCCI secretary Jay Shah on Sunday night. The date and time of the AGM will be announced later.

Shah has provided an 18-point agenda for the AGM, with the most important items listed first – Item B and C. These are their names:

B. Election and induction of two (two) General Body representatives to the IPL’s Governing Council.

C. Induction of one (1) representative of the Indian Cricketers’ Association into the IPL’s Governing Council.

Arun Singh Dhumal (chairman) and Avishek Dalmiya (member) are the General Body’s current representatives. Pragyan Ojha, the sole representative from the Indian Cricketers’ Association (ICA), joined the Governing Council after winning the ICA election last year. It is unclear whether new members will be inducted, possibly in light of the launch of the Women’s Premier League (WPL), or whether existing members will be changed. The Governing Council also includes Secretary Shah, Treasurer Ashish Shelar, and CAG member CM Sane.

Surprisingly, no mention of a change to the senior men’s selection committee is made. Ajit Agarkar of Mumbai was appointed in July as the chairman of the committee, which also includes another Mumbai selector, Salil Ankola, but no representation from the North Zone. Some have speculated that a course correction will be made at the AGM.

However, there is a point on the agenda where the selection committee’s reconstitution can be discussed. It says:

K. Appointment of Cricket and Standing Committees, as specified in Rules 26 and 25, respectively.

Rule 26 governs the formation of selection committees in all formats, including men’s, women’s, and junior teams, whereas Rule 25 governs tournament committee formation.

The appointment of the BCCI representative to the International Cricket Council (ICC) and other international bodies such as the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is also noteworthy. These roles are expected to be nominated for Shah. The appointment of the Ombudsman and Ethics Officer is addressed in Agenda Item J.

Important issues are frequently addressed in a discrete item on the agenda that states, “Consideration of any business that the President may deem necessary to include on the agenda.” This is item Q, and some critical decisions may be made under this heading.

The general body has 38 members, and they have all been notified about the AGM.
