The Indian Cricketers Association (ICA) has nominated Pragyan Ojha, former Indian left-arm spinner as its representative to the IPL Governing Council before the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
The ICA needs to appoint a member for the IPL Governing Council according to the BCCI constitution, and last year the association was represented by Surinder Khanna, a former India International.
According to the ICA’s release, at the ICA AGM held on 19th Dec 2020, the members of the association had authorised the Board of Directors to appoint a member to the IPL Governing Council, and after due deliberation and taking into consideration any potential conflict of interest concerns, the ICA Board found that Pragyan Ojha is a suitable candidate to represent them in the IPL GC. This nomination will hold good for a year.
Along with Pragyan Ojha, the other members of the IPL Governing Council will be Brijesh Patel and Khairul Jamal Majumdar. Last year, the BCCI unanimously selected both Brijesh Patel and Khairul Jamal Majumdar as the members of the GC and this time as well, they are set to get another term, unopposed.
In February this year, the 34-year-old Pragyan Ojha, who played in 24 Test matches, 18 ODI matches and six T20I matches, retired from all forms of cricket. He was also part of the Mumbai Indians side in his international career, which won the IPL title.
