Former BCCI PResident Jagmohan Dalmiya has officially become the President of BCCI replacing N. Srinivasan, who resigned his post following a corruption scandal. Dalmiya was elected unopposed today for the top post at the Indian cricket board’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in chennai today. Anirudh Choudhary was elected as the treasurer.

The joint-secretary during Srinivasans’s regime Anurag Thakur has become the new secretary after edging out Srinivasan’s loyalist Sanjay Patel 15-14 in voting.

According to the Press Trust of India (PTI), the 74 year old Dalmiya was the consensus candidate among rival factions for BCCI president.  Dalmiya also held the position of BCCI President a decade ago. Dalmiya was ousted by rivals as BCCI chief in 2005 and Sharad Pawar took over from Dalmiya.

Dalmiya has come to power once again after the Supreme Court banned Srinivasan from standing as a candidate for BCCI chief, although he can cast his vote, following its probe into a betting and fixing scandal surrounding the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The court in January found Srinivasan guilty of a conflict of interest for having dealings in the sport by owning an IPL franchise while he was also BCCI head. However, Srinivasan will continue as the International Cricket Council (ICC) chief.
