The BCCI board members and state officials will be meeting for an Annual General Meeting on Thursday, December 24. While there is a lot of serious stuff on agenda for the meeting, the BCCI officials will also be seen in a friendly game of cricket at the new Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad.

As the BCCI boasts of its newest excellent cricket facility in India, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and vice-President Jay Shah have decided to have a go with their teams before a professional cricket match is conducted at the international-level stadium.

One of the primary agendas of the AGM is that of setting up the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). The members of the newly-elected CAC will then be given the responsibility of interviewing candidates and selecting the national selectors' committee for Team India before the England series begins in February 2021.
