Former CAB president Avishek Dalmiya and current IPL chairman Arun Singh Dhumal have been re-elected to the IPL governing council, according to resolutions passed at the BCCI’s annual general meeting in Goa on Monday. The general body was informed that BCCI earns more than 38 percent from annual revenue generated by ICC and also Rs 67 crore (approx) per match earned from media rights during the next cycle of bilateral series. “All routine decisions happened. The list of names for the cricket committees and sub-committees will be prepared by the officials as entrusted by the House. As far as IPL GC is concerned, IPL chairman Arun Dhumal and Avishek Dalmiya were to be chosen and it happened on expected lines,” said a representative of the state unit of PTI.

It is also learned that the Ombudsman-cum-Ethics Officer will continue as per his contract which is set to expire next year.

“The ombudsman-cum-ethics officer will continue till June 2024. He will serve his full contract,” the state unit source said.

The board members were also briefed about the new budget and the profit that BCCI had in the last financial year.

Former India left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha will no longer be the Indian Cricketers’ Association’s representative on the Apex Council.

“The ICA will have its election and then choose their new representative.” There was talk of removing Salil Ankola from the national selection panel as chairman of selectors Ajit Agarkar, who is also from Mumbai, is already part of the panel.

The BCCI has a convention that five selectors represent five zones and this time there are two from the West Zone.

“There has been no such discussion about this during the general meeting. If there is anything, it can only happen after the World Cup. Right now there is no change in a voter,” the source said.
