Rajiv Shukla to be new IPL Commissioner: Sources

Mumbai: The IPL Governing Council is to be reconstituted by the general body which is expected to choose current vice-president from central zone and union minister Rajiv Shukla to be its new head following the decision of Chirayu Amin to step down.

Another prominent agenda is appointment of new senior selection panel to replace the one currently headed by Krishnamachari Srikkanth.

While Srikkanth is likely to get an extension for one year, with Srinivasan at the helm of affairs, his 1983 World Cup teammate Yashpal Sharma is expected to be replaced after having completed four years as a national selector.

While there could be pressure on Maharashtra`s Surendra Bhave to make way for another former player from West Zone, East`s representative Raja Venkat and Central`s Narendra Hirwani are expected to retain their places, according to sources.
