India’s Representative to ICC:

Other important topics in the Annual General Meeting will be India’s representative to International Cricket Council (ICC) and Asian Cricket Council. However, the most significant name for the positions in global Councils is Jay Sah. He is currently the secretary of BCCI.

The Appointment of three new national selectors along with the chairman of selectors is another major point of discussion in the meet. 

Apart from these major points, the All Umpire’s sub-committee will also be formed and issues related to National Cricket Acadamy (NCA) will also be given time in the deliberations.

The agenda will also discuss the future tour programs for India in 2021-22, preparations related to next year’s World Cup (ICC Tax issue), and the inclusion of Cricket in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.

After the resignation of vice president Mahim vera, the post has been vacant and discussion on that will also be done.
