Prasad frontrunner for BCCI GM operations post
Former India seamer Venkatesh Prasad, who's currently the chairman of the junior selection committee, is likely to be the next General Manager, cricket operations of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Prasad was interviewed for the post on November 2. "He's most likely to get the job as he fulfils all the criteria mentioned in the requirement for the job," a BCCI official told TOI on Monday. Prasad, who played 33 Tests and 161 ODIs for India in the 1990s, will have to quit his post as a junior selector if he's hired for this position.
The Indian women's team is set to play its maiden 'A' series, comprising three one-dayers and an equal number of T20 games, next month when they host Bangladesh for a short tour.
"We're also trying to finalise a Future Tours and Programme (FTP) for the Indian women's team for the first time. The plans to hold the women's IPL are also very much underway," a BCCI official told TOI on Monday.
The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) and the Cricket Club of India (CCI) will jointly host the Under-19 Challenger trophy, a selection trial for the World Cup in New Zealand in January next year, at the MCA ground in BKC and the Brabourne Stadium, from November 26 to December 2.
The Indian Under-19 team is currently taking part in the Asia Cup in Kuala Lumpur.
