Mumbai, Sep 26 (UNI) The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all set to witness change of guard during the two-day annual general body meeting that will begins at its headquarters here from tomorrow.

The Indian cricket board is all set to sail on fresh waters here beginning tomorrow with a smooth change of guard at the helm when President Sharad Pawar steps down and hands over the mantle for the next three years to man-in-waiting Shashank Manohar at their 79th AGM.

Nagpur-based lawyer Manohar, the Vice-President from Central Zone representing Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA), became the President-elect to take over the reins from Mr Pawar at the last AGM.

The tough-talking Manohar would be assisted in his functions as secretary by current treasurer N Srinivasan of Tamil Nadu, who is set to be declared elected unopposed to the important post, according to BCCI sources.

Sanjay Jagdale of Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association and M P Pandove of Punjab Cricket Association are two other key office-bearers who are to be declared elected officially as the Board's new Joint Secretary and Treasurer respectively.

Outgoing chief Mr Pawar, after day-long parleys at the Board's headquarters, said as per the BCCI's constitution the names of the elected candidates would be announced only at the AGM, after revealing that the Board had received only one nomination for each of these posts as well as the posts of five Vice-Presidents.

''Today unfortunately we received only one nomination for the post of Secretary, Joint Secretary, Treasurer and five Vice-Presidents (each). Their names would be announced only tomorrow at the AGM as per the constitutional procedure,'' Mr Pawar told reporters.
