In 1912, the All India cricket team sponsored and toured England for the first time under the captaincy of the Maharaja of Patiala.

What is the Board of Control for Cricket in India?

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was established on 31 January 1932 in Mumbai, with the aim of making Indian cricket more professional. To do this, it was decided that a central board would be formed under the control of the government and would control the finances of the sport. This board will also draft the national cricket constitution and allow players to choose their representatives on the board.

 This board was a direct result of a dispute between Ranjitsinhji and J.B. Chandor. The dispute, which threatened to disrupt the 1932–1933 series between England and India, was the result of conflict between individual clubs, which were controlled by wealthy members of Indian society, and the Indian government.

The history of the Board of Control for Cricket in India

The Board of Control for Cricket in India was formed in 1919 and was the first official governing body for cricket in India. The BCCI works with 10 elected directors, and is headed by Shashank Manohar, who became its president in April 2014.

The Indo-Pakistani rivalry

Cricket was born in the 19th century. It has become a proxy battle between the two countries over the decades, and has resulted in the game becoming one of the most controversial in international cricket.

How does BCCI work? 

To be eligible to become an Associate Member of the BCCI, a team must have an average attendance of at least 10,000 per match in each of the major league matches played in its home state.

 All the states have been given the right to be affiliated to the BCCI based on their status as an associate member. An affiliate must have a permanent cricket facility, and the means to finance all national, provincial and district level cricket teams. In the early days of the BCCI, it was expected that the affiliated states would form the vast majority of the cricket players, but the practice of choosing the national team was passed on to the BCCI.

The President of BCCI is the official head of the Board. Other executives include the Managing Director, Cricket Operations Manager, Commercial Manager and Manager of Cricket Operations.

The Secretary, formerly the Manager of Cricket Operations, is the senior-most member of the Board, and sits on the three-member Executive Committee.

 How did India earn its title as "Granary of Cricket"?

 Although the game of cricket originated in England, the modern version of the game was first played in India in the 16th century. From the middle of the 18th century, the British played a major role in developing the game across India.


The arrival of Sachin Tendulkar and the Indian cricket team is a matter of celebration and pride for India. I hope the "Golden Boys" will continue to make India proud in the years to come.
