Ravi Shastri, Ganguly also in governing council

Rajeev Shukla was on Monday re-appointed chairman of the Indian Premier League Governing Council, a post he held in 2013 before quitting following the spot fixing scandal.

Mr. Shukla, a senior member of the Board, was entrusted with the task keeping in mind the new regime’s policy to take everyone along. “He is a seasoned administrator and we thought he was best suited to handle the role at a crucial stage of the tournament,” Board secretary Anurag Thakur told The Hindu.

The Board president, Jagmohan Dalmiya, and Mr. Thakur had been given the responsibility of picking the GC members. “We have kept in mind the interest of the Board and the game in forming the various committees. The message is clear. We are a family and all associations have been accommodated in the committees. Mr. Shukla’s experience will be very significant for conducting the IPL,” said Mr. Thakur.

In the recent Board elections, Mr. Shukla unsuccessfully contested for treasurer.

Notable inclusions in the GC are former Test captains Sourav Ganguly and Ravi Shastri, apart from Maharashtra Cricket Association president Ajay Shirke, who resigned as the Board’s treasurer in protest against former president N. Srinivasan. The Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association president, Jyotiraditya Scindia, has been included as a special invitee.
