Kolkata:Former test keeper Kiran More is most likely to be appointed as the chairman of the NationalSelection Committee replacing Syed Kirmani whose three- year term has completed.

With the focus shifting to the appointment of the National Selection Committee and five Vice-Presidents of the BCCI after yesterday's high-pitched battle for the post of thePresident, More emerged as the strong contender taking into account his seniority in the five-member body.

More, who represents West Zone, would become the seniormost in the crucial body following the completion of the term of Kirmani of South Zone and Sanjay Jgadale of Central Zone.

The general body of the board has started deliberations on these issues as well as other pending issues which could not be taken up yesterday in view of the day-long dramainvolving the election of the President in which Ranbir Singh Mahendra had emerged victorious defeating Maharashtra's strongman Sharad Pawar with the help of casting vote of the outgoing president Jagmohan Dalmiya.

Meanwhile, three changes were made as the BCCI today elected five of its vice-President for new term.

C K Khanna from North Zone has been appointed one of the vice-presidents replacing Ranbir Singh Mahendra who was elected President yesterday defeating Sharad Pawar in a close contest.

The other two new faces were Rajiv Shukla from East Zone replacing Goutam Roy, who completed his term, and Chirayu Amin from West Zone who replaced Narhari Amin.

Ranga Reddy of South Zone and Kamal Morarka of Central Zone were re-elected to the post.
