Secretary) and Mr. N Ram (eminent journalist) have also nominated former India captain Ms. Diana Edulji, and Ms. Sudha Shah, former India batter and coach for the BCCI Lifetime Achievement Award (women).

The committee has recommended Mr. Abbas Ali Baig, late Mr. Naren Tamhane and late Mr. Budhi Kunderan for the BCCI Special award.

The BCCI Annual Awards will be held before the historic Test between India and Afghanistan in Bengaluru.
