Earlier, Dalmiya’s name was doing the rounds for the post of Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman. Sources told IANS that it was Dalmiya’s (73) age that went against his appointment as the IPL chairman.
Meanwhile, the appointment of Biswal as the IPL chairman was severely protested by the Dalmiya-headed Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).
While Dalmiya, a former BCCI and International Cricket Council (ICC) president, missed out, his three junior colleagues in the CAB found places in other important committees.
CAB joint secretaries Subir Ganguly and Sujan Mukherjee were named in the IPL governing council.
