Shukla shared the updates regarding the Women’s Indian Premier League (IPL) stating that the IPL governing council has been asked to finalize the details for the tournament with the franchise auction to be decided later.

“We have in principle decided to start women’s IPL. IPL governing council was asked to finalise the details for the same. Franchise auction and all other things will be decided in some time,” informed Rajeev Shukla.

Rajeev Shukla commented on the BCCI’s stand for the International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman post saying that they have not decided anything on the ICC Chairman post yet.

“We have not decided anything on the ICC Chairman post yet. As a tradition all the members have authorised the office bearers to take a call on that, we are still to nominate our members for apex council. ICC elections are still far away and we will take a call at the appropriate time,” disclosed Shukla.

Former Indian cricketer Roger Binny has been appointed as the 36th President of the BCCI President while Jay Shah continues as the secretary. Binny, who represented India in 27 Tests and 72 ODIs, has also served as a member of the national selection committee.

The other BCCI office bearers, who were elected unanimously include secretary Jay Shah, Ashish Shelar (treasurer), Rajeev Shukla (vice-president), and Devajit Saikia (joint secretary). Outgoing treasurer Arun Dhumal will be the new IPL chairman as Birjesh Patel will turn 70 next month.

Binny was known for his impressive bowling performance in the 1983 Cricket World Cup where he was the highest wicket-taker (18 wickets) and in the 1985 World Series Cricket Championship in Australia where he repeated this feat (17 wickets).

Binny started his international career on his home ground, the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore in the first Test of the 1979 home series against Pakistan.
