Sharad Pawar, The President of Mumbai Cricket Association, has decided to contest the BCCI elections this time around. 

Pawar, who was the BCCI president from 2005 to 2008 and the ICC president from 2010 to 2012, has emerged to be a strong candidate ahead of N Srinivasan, who candidature looks doubtful due to his conflict of interest issues in Indian Cricket. 

The BCCI elections were postponed twice due to the Supreme Court hearing of the 2013 IPL betting and spot-fixing scandal. On January 22, the Supreme Court ordered that BCCI elections should be held within the next six weeks.

For Pawar to win, he must secure the votes of the majority of East Zone units of the BCCI. Earlier, most East Zone members had backed Srinivasan but the equations are fast changing as the Supreme Court order now has upset Srinivasan’s plans.

    While spending good 22 years of my life, I found my passion in India's unofficial national game, Cricket.
