The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have announced that they will elect a new president on October 4 in Mumbai.
The post became vacant following the death of Jagmohan Dalmiya, who suffered a heart attack two weeks ago before passing away a few days later at BM Birla hospital in Kolkata.
The board also revealed that all nominations for the position have to be filed on October 3.
As of now, it is understood that Shashank Manohar is the frontrunner to take over the post, while it has also been reported that the BCCI are set to unanimously vote for him.
“Shashank Manohar is our consensus candidate,” BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur told PTI. “N Srinivasan can come and vote at the SGM.”
