Gavaskar dropped from IPL council

Mumbai, September 29
Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar is not a part of the new Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council team that was reconstituted in the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) Annual General Meeting (AGM) held here on Wednesday. Former Indian cricket captains Ravi Shastri and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi have, however, been retained in the IPL Governing Council.

Other members of the new IPL Governing Council are Chirayu Amin, Arun Jaitley, Rajiv Shukla, Ranjib Biswal and Anurag Thakur.

A crucial decision that was taken during the recent meeting was to reduce the term from five years to one year.

It has been reported that the panel has been reconstituted to make sure that suspended IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi is removed from all posts.

The BCCI has also withdrew the fund embezzlement case against its former President Jagmohan Dalmiya and also lifted a four-year-old expulsion imposed on him, clearing the decks for his return to national cricket administration.

"The BCCI, at its AGM held here today, has withdrawn the suit it has filed against Jagmohan Dalmiya in the Bombay High Court and it has also withdrawn the expulsion that was imposed on him in 2006," a statement from the Board read. ANI
