Union Agriculture Minister and Maharashtra Cricket Association chief Sharad Pawar is learnt to have won the BCCI elections, pipping incumbent Ranbir Singh Mahendra for the top post.
Pawar won 20-11, his faction claimed.
NDTV’s website, however is more circumspect: “Sharad Pawar faction claims victory in the BCCI presidential polls” is all that it says.
Pawar’s election, if confirmed, is a major blow to Jagmohan Dalmiya, though it remains to be seen how the veteran from Maharashtra is going to rid Indian cricket of its politics.
