Set to be elected unopposed, Ajay Shirke to remain as BCCI secretary
As the BCCI gets ready to host the 87th Annual General Meeting (AGM) under the looming shadow of the RM Lodha panel recommendations, according to media reports it is almost certain that current secretary Ajay Shirke will be elected unopposed at the AGM scheduled to be held in Mumbai on Wednesday. In fact, a senior BCCI functionary confirmed that Shirke’s was the only nomination for the secretary’s post.
“His (Shirke) was the only nomination received today,” the official told reporters on Tuesday. Shirke became the secretary in July after Anurag Thakur was elevated as the president with Shashank Manohar opting to quit BCCI for the ICC chairmanship. Shirke is the supremo of the Maharashtra Cricket Association and is known to be close to former BCCI and ICC president Sharad Pawar.
“The Goa Cricket Association (GCA) has proposed Dr. Venkatesh Prabhu Dessai as its nominee to attend the 87th AGM,” the BCCI release added.
