Shashank Manohar was on Saturday named as new president of the Indian cricket board while former Test opener Krishnamachari Srikkanth was elected as the chief selector.

The new list of office bearers was unveiled at the annual general meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) here.

Manohar took over from Sharad Pawar who completed his three-year term as BCCI chief and is also the president-elect of the International Cricket Council.

Pawar is set to head the world body from 2010 to 2012 after David Morgan completes his current term.

Srikkanth, who captained India on the 1989 tour of Pakistan, will head the country's first ever paid selection panel that will also include Yashpal Sharma, Raja Venkat, Surendra Bhave and Narendra Hirwani.

N. Srinivasan was named as the new secretary in place of Niranjan Shah who was appointed as vice-chairman of the governing council of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Lalit Modi retained his post as one of the five vice-presidents and the chairman of the IPL's governing council.
