BCCI Secretary Jay Shah will attend the ICC board meeting later this month in place of President Sourav Ganguly, who is recovering from a minor heart attack. The convention at ICC meetings is that board chairmen of the member countries attend the meeting of the Board of Directors while the secretary attends the Chief Executives Meeting (CEC). The secretary is also a deputy director on the ICC board. “Our secretary (Shah) will represent BCCI at the next ICC board meeting as Dada is recovering and calm has been advised. This is for this meeting only,” Dhumal clarified to PTI after conflicting reports emerged about a change in the representation of BCCI at the ICC sign.
“As the secretary will be attending the board meeting, I was asked to attend the ICC CEC meeting that took place almost recently,” said Dhumal.
It is clear that the T20 World Cup in India will be one of the main issues discussed at the meeting. On January 2, Ganguly suffered a mild heart attack and was admitted to a hospital in Kolkata, where he underwent angioplasty. The former Indian captain has been given complete rest for three weeks.
