New Delhi, Sept 16: ) The BCCI bigwigs will be meeting tomorrow in Mumbai to zero in on some of the key posts which includes the names of new national selectors along with the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Administrative Officer before the AGM on September 19.
The two of the most dicey selection affairs are going to be post of CEO for which IPL CEO Sundar Raman and TNCA official Kashi Viswanath are in fray.
According to BCCI sources, in case Raman becomes CEO, Kashi who is unlikely to be based out of Chennai may be made the Chief Administrative Officer.
With Ratnakar Shetty being tipped to get a post in ICC headquarters in Dubai, the choice for the two paid posts in BCCI will be interesting.
As far as the selection committee goes, it will be a mixed panel with Narendra Hirwani of Central Zone and Surendra Bhave from West likely to retain their positions.
The other contentious issue will be the selector from East Zone where former Orissa seamer Debashis Mohanty has supposedly thrown his hat into the ring after Ranjib Biswal became the front-runner for secretary''s post.
The three candidates from Bengal are two former Bengal captains Devang Gandhi and Deep Dasgupta. However another former cricketer Arup Bhattacharya who enjoys political backing from an influential minister of West Bengal governement has also been in the fray.
According to CAB sources president Jagmohan Dalmiya won''t mind if Venkat is given an extension as the state association is not exactly in favour of Bhattacharya''s candidature.
From North Zone Vikram Rathour is the favourite with former U-19 selector Sanjeev Sharma''s name has also been making rounds but apparently both Punjab Cricket Association and HPCA are in favour of the former India opener.
