History could be made in the next couple of days albeit by default when Shivlal Yadav becomes the next president of the Indian cricket board in the wake of the Supreme Court's recommendation that current chief N Srinivasan should step aside for the sake of a thorough probe into the Indian Premier League spot fixing scandal.

Yadav could be the first Test cricketer in modern times to head the Board. The Hyderabad-based former India off-spinner is tipped for the top job.

If he gets the president's post, it will add to the various caps he has adorned like national selector, team manager and at the time of writing BCCI vice-president. Yadav told the media that he was willing to accept the big post if given an opportunity.

The Maharaja of Maharajah of Vizianagram (Vizzy) was the Board chief from 1954-55 to 1955-56.
