BCCI's Planned Makeover Includes Three GMs

The Board of Control for Cricket in India, "often criticized for lack of professionalism, could undergo a makeover very soon," according to K Shriniwas Rao of the TNN. It plans to bring in professional managers "to improve the administrative machinery." The board's goal is to have three general managers in place: for operations, cricket and the Indian Premier League. The candidates will be "hand picked for the job." BCCI Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty "is likely to take over" as GM of Operations, therefore leaving the post of CAO redundant. IPL CEO Sundar Raman "is likely to take over" as the league's GM, while "an accomplished ex-cricketer will take over as GM of Cricket (TNN, 10/11). The PTI reported the BCCI "has been forced to delay" the first meeting of its National Cricket Academy sub-committee, as it has yet to finalize the name for the post of director with another former captain Kapil Dev's "name coming into picture." However, former Indian captain Rahul Dravid "is believed to be the front-runner for the post," but he remains undecided on whether he should take up the offer. His indecisiveness "is precisely the reason for the delay" of the meeting (PTI, 10/11).
