On December 19, the Indian Cricketers' Association (ICA) will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM).
It’s understood that on Wednesday, all members of the association were formally communicated that the meeting would take place virtually due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
As recommended by the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha panel, the ICA, which is India's first ever players' association, was formed last year and already has over 2,000 former cricket players as its members.
The association is expected to pass on its finances and address the plan for the future in the meeting. It will also decide on who will represent the ICA in the governing council of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the AGM meeting.
The term of the members of the Governing Council - other than the Secretary, Treasurer, CEO and C&AG nominee - shall be one year in accordance with the BCCI Constitution.
In 2019, Surinder Khanna, former Indian international, was elected as the ICA representative in the IPL Governing Council. But, it needs to be seen if Surinder Khanna is given a longer rope, as in the meeting, whether new elections will take place or if the directors will nominate a representative for the role.
