Jagmohan Dalmiya is BCCI president after winning an uncontested election

MUMBAI: After winning an uncontested election veteran cricket administrator Jagmohan Dalmiya will make a comeback as full-time president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after 10 years.

He was the sole nominee for the top post, which was formally filled at the board's AGM on 2 March, 2015.

The former International Cricket Council (ICC) president, whose previous tenure as full-time BCCI chief in India ended in 2004, emerged as a consensus candidate of the two rival groups as the deadline for filing nomination ended on the afternoon of 1 March.

While one group was led by the sidelined board president N. Srinivasan, the other camp was led by Maharashtra strongman Sharad Pawar.

Both the groups claimed that Dalmiya was their candidate, but the wily 74-year-old businessman has kept his cards close to his chest.

“Three sets of nominations were filed on Dalmiya's behalf. Each of the six BCCI affiliates from the east Zone were either proposer or seconder,” a BCCI source told IANS.

As per BCCI rules, it is the turn of the east zone associations this year to nominate candidates for the elections.

Srinivasan was barred by the Supreme Court from contesting the election following the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot fixing scam. He is not even allowed to participate in the AGM, but can only vote when required as a nominee of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), if there is an election.

Former ICC chief Pawar, who was BCCI president from 2005-2008, was also eyeing the post, but had to backtrack after failing to find a proposer and seconder from the east zone.

Anurag Thakur edged Sanjay Patel by a vote to win the post of BCCI Secretary.

The outcome of the meeting :

·         Jagmohan Dalmiya - President

·         Anurag Thakur - Hon. Secretary

·         Amitabh Choudhary – Hon. Jt. Secretary

·         Anirudh Chaudhry – Hon. Treasurer

·         M.L. Nehru – Vice President (North)

·         G. Ganga Raju - Vice President (South)

·         Gautam Roy - Vice President (East)

·         T.C. Mathew - Vice President (West)

·         C.K. Khanna - Vice President (Central)

The audited accounts for the FY 2013 – 2014 were approved.
