The much anticipated Apex Council Meeting of the Board of Cricket Control for India (BCCI) is likely to be held over a virtual video conference session on Wednesday. A range of crucial decisions will be taken by the managing committee to decide the course of India’s 2023 calendar year.

Amongst the many important topics to be discussed, let’s have an insight into the most prominent ones:

Decision on Central Contracts

The BCCI is likely going to take a call on the central contracts for capped Indian cricketers. A significant reshuffle will likely take place after evolving squad changes across all the formats. Ace batsmen Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer will likely get a promotion.

Distinct T20I Captain and Coach

If sources are to be believed, it is most likely that BCCI will announce a separate T-20I captain of the Indian team as well as a distinct coach to manage the workload in the shortest format of the game. The dynamic nature of the format and India’s poor exit at the T20 World Cup is the standalone factors considered by BCCI to take a controversial decision.

Rohit Sharma has turned 35 this year and has a handful of years left to actively play international cricket. Also, incumbent head coach Rahul Dravid is going through a tough time with the increased workload. In such a scenario, Hardik Pandya will likely be handed over the reign of India’s T20I team and a new coach for the side will be appointed soon.

New Selection Committee

The BCCI had earlier sacked the selection committee under Chetan Sharma after India’s T20 World Cup debacle. With the approaching World Cup and World Test Championship in the radar, the appointment of a new selection committee will definitely be on the agenda.

Support Staff and Injury Management

It is reported that the BCCI is dissatisfied with the team management and support staff. Along with it, India’s injury management has also been criticized after veteran paceman Jasprit Bumrah and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja have been out of the team for a brief period. A decision on this will also be taken.

Home Series Venue

The BCCI will also take a call and announce the venues for the upcoming home series against Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand. The decision on hosting a pink-ball test against Australia in Ahmedabad will also be taken.

Apart from this, several vital topics of discussion such as the selection of primary jersey sponsor amongst Byju’s and MPL. Stay tuned with us for all the updates.
