Chennai, March 2 Veteran cricket administrator Jagmohan Dalmiya was on Monday elected president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) during its annual general meeting (AGM) here.

Apart from Dalmiya, the other new entrant is Haryana’s Anirudh Choudhary who has been appointed the new treasurer while Himachal Pradesh’s Anurag Thakur was named the board secretary.
