Sanjay Jagdale accepts key BCCI post

Calcutta: The outgoing senior national selector from Central, Sanjay Jagdale, will be the next joint secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

That Jagdale had been offered the key post by the ruling Sharad Pawar group was reported by The Telegraph on Sunday.

“After giving the matter some thought, I’ve given my consent... I’m looking forward to the new role,” the Indore-based Jagdale said on Wednesday evening.

Jagdale, who has served as the India manager more than once, is the secretary of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association and has played quite a bit of first-class cricket.

Soft-spoken and known to be absolutely meticulous, Jagdale is going to succeed Punjab’s Mohinder Pandove, who is only a few days away from becoming the BCCI treasurer.

According to the intra-Pawar group understanding, the current treasurer, Tamil Nadu’s N.Srinivasan, will become the secretary. Niranjan Shah (Saurashtra), whose term is getting over, is going to be “suitably accommodated.” He won’t, however, be an office-bearer.

Pawar (Mumbai) will, of course, himself be succeeded by Vidarbha’s Shashank Manohar. The next president and joint secretary are, therefore, both going to be from the same zone.

Meanwhile, one learns that Baroda’s Chirayu Amin will continue as vice-president from West. The question mark over South’s man, though, continues. The buzz is that Dayanand Narvekar (Goa) could have to make way for Hyderabad’s Shivlal Yadav.

As already mentioned in these columns, Delhi’s Arun Jaitley is going to be the vice-president from North, Tripura’s Arindam Ganguly will be East’s new man, with Rajasthan’s Lalit Modi sitting in the vice-president’s chair for Central.

At the moment, despite heading an affiliate from Central, Modi is North’s representative on the panel of vice-presidents.

Some days remain for the September 27-28 AGM in Mumbai and, so, changes in the ‘script’ are possible. However, it’s not very likely.
