The BCCI working committee has decided to set in motion the process for hiring a chief executive officer (CEO) and chief financial officer (CFO) for the board. The decision was taken at the working committee in Mumbai on Friday, which was followed by a special general meeting (SGM) of the board. The big news to come out of the SGM were the decisions to grant full-member status to Chhattisgarh State Cricket Sangh, and to rework the BCCI’s future tours programme (FTP) for the period 2016 to 2023, to “ensure equitable distribution of the matches”.
Following the ICC revamp in 2014, when the main FTP-setting powers passed from the ICC to the individual boards, the BCCI signed bilateral agreements that have confirmed India would play the most Tests (20) against England from 2015 to 2023, followed by Australia (16) and South Africa (12), with teams see as less attractive opposition seemingly losing out.
