Current secretary Ajay Shirke is all set to be elected unopposed at the 87th Annual General Meeting of the BCCI scheduled to be held on Wednesday.

In fact a senior BCCI functionary confirmed that Shirke's was the only nomination for the secretary's post.

"His (Shirke) was the only nomination received today (Tuesday)," the official told PTI.

Shirke became the secretary in July after Anurag Thakur was elevated as the president with Shashank Manohar opting to quit BCCI for the ICC chairmanship.

Shirke is the supremo of the Maharashtra Cricket Association and known to be close to former BCCI and ICC president Sharad Pawar.
