The elections for five office-bearer posts - president, vice-president, secretary, joint secretary, and treasurer would also be conducted on the same day in Mumbai.

The BCCI on Thursday sent circulars to state associations informing them about the Annual General Meeting, scheduled for October 18 in Mumbai.

Alongside the annual meeting, the elections for five office-bearer posts – president, vice-president, secretary, joint secretary, and treasurer would also be conducted on the same day in Mumbai.

A BCCI official said, “We have decided to conduct the election on October 18. The officer’s name will be made public in due course.”

The notice comes days after Supreme Court’s verdict, which allowed BCCI to amend its constitution.

Earlier, an office bearer who served in the state association and completed one term in BCCI would have to go on a mandatory three-year cooling-off period. But now, an office bearer can continue his position for two consecutive terms in the BCCI. The decision paved the way for current president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah to run for their second terms.

In the circular, Sourav highlighted the plans for the upcoming domestic season and IPL. He also wrote about launching the women’s IPL next year.

There are murmurs that Ganguly might not run for the presidential elections as he is eyeing the ICC chair. Although, the former Indian skipper has clarified his stance and said, “The ICC chairmanship is not in my hands.”

If that is the case, then current secretary Jay Shah will likely stand for the presidential position, and treasurer Arun Dhumal might be the new secretary.
