Virat Kohli stepped down from India's Test captaincy on Friday in a social media post. Kohli's decision comes after India failed to win their maiden Test series in South Africa on Friday. India lost 2-1.
India outplayed Sri Lanka in a rain-marred final to win their eighth junior continental title. The Boys in Blue won by nine wickets via a DLS method in the summit clash that was reduced to 38 overs a side.
In the absence of a strong administration at BCCI, Virat Kohli called the shots and not many seemed to mind it. However, his reign had to be challenged at some point with Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah filling the power vacuum.
The topmost NCA post fell vacant after Rahul Dravid took over as the head coach of Team India. VVS Laxman's appointment as the NCA chief was one of the points of discussion at the BCCI AGM.
The Indians were originally scheduled to depart for South Africa on December 9. As things stand now, the Tests are unlikely to start on December 17 as planned earlier. The new schedule will be confirmed by CSA in the next 48 hours.
Ahead of Sunday’s BCCI Annual General Meeting in Kolkata, secretary Jay Shah’s team pipped president Sourav Ganguly’s XI by just one run at iconic Eden Gardens. The match was played 15-overs-a-side.
There will also be an election of two new governing council members but it is understood that in the end it could be a unanimous decision.
PCB chairman Ramiz Raja personally met BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah on the sidelines of the ACC meet in Dubai recently.
Along with the match kit, over 10 variations, including a player edition jersey and skipper Virat Kohli’s signature number 18 jersey have also been launched.
BCCI will also release the tender for IPL media rights (2023-2027) after the new teams are announced on October 25.
Virat Kohli will hand over India's T20 captaincy after the World Cup in October-November. Given his IPL record as skipper, Rohit Sharma, is widely tipped to succeed him.
Virat Kohli is yet to win an ICC Trophy while Rohit Sharma is IPL's most successful captain with Mumbai Indians leading them to five titles.
At present, a playing XI player in a Ranji Trophy game gets Rs 35,000 per day and a match fee of Rs 1.4 lakh per game
While players lost out on significant earnings, the BCCI copped a lot of flak for too much focus on the cash-rich league
Apart from representing India 79 times in the international arena, Yashpal was also a distinguished national selector
Initially, BCCI was thinking of having 10 double headers, but afternoon matches could have been physically exhausting for players
