The inclusion of two new IPL franchises, a discussion on the contentious tax exemption demanded by the ICC for global events in India and the setting up of various cricket committees will be on top of the agenda when the BCCI holds its 89th AGM in Ahmedabad on Thursday. The BCCI will also have a new vice president in Rajiv Shukla, who is going to be officially taking over after being put forth as the unanimous choice.Also Read - ENG vs WI Dream11 Team Tips, Fantasy Prediction ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Match 14: Captain, Vice-Captain - England vs West Indies, Playing 11s, Team News For Today's Group A T20 Match at Dubai International Stadium at 7:30 PM IST October 23 Saturday

Brijesh Patel will also continue to head the IPL governing council. There have been some discussions on whether BCCI president Sourav Ganguly will be asked about his brand endorsements and the related allegations of conflict of interest. But there is no clarity if the floor would officially seek an explanation from him on the matter. The biggest development could be the approval of new IPL teams but primarily from the 2022 edition.

“At this point, the 10-team IPL, if BCCI intends to conduct it in 2021, will be a hurried one given that the tendering process and a mega auction will be difficult to organise in such a short span of time,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on the eve of the meeting.

“It is only fair that the approval is taken and the big 94 match tournament is held in 2022,” he said.

Tax exemptions for World T20

There’s only a week left for the BCCI to meet the ICC’s deadline of giving complete assurance that the global body will get full tax exemption for holding the World T20 in October-November or else it will be shifted to the UAE.

While there has been precedence of exemptions during earlier global events, the current tax laws won’t allow exemption for a sporting event and it will be interesting to see what will be the BCCI’s stand on the issue.

BCCI representative in ICC

BCCI secretary Jay Shah will remain India’s representative at the ICC on various issues like last year along with Ganguly.

Cricket in Olympics

If BCCI supports cricket at the Los Angeles Olympics in 2028, it might end up losing its autonomy as being a National Sports Federation means coming under the ambit of sports ministry with constant government interventions.

Various Cricket Committees

The BCCI hasn’t constituted important cricket sub-committees for the longest time. It is understood a new Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) will be formed which will interview candidates for three new selectors.

Also the various cricket committees like umpiring committee and the technical committee are also likely to be formed.
