Mumbai: Sharad Pawar's election as President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India means cricketing power shifting to Mumbai. The city is apparently set to host many more BCCI meetings. The Board's working committee will meet in Mumbai on Sunday. The agenda includes choosing an alternate venue for the Kanpur Test, players' contracts, team sponsorship and television rights. The debate on the Board office shifting from Mumbai is now non-existent. The office may shift location but not cities. The city's cricketing fraternity is excited that more policies and decisions will be made in Mumbai perhaps re-establishing the fact that it is the cricket capital of India.
