Ravi Shastri, the former India captain, was today appointed chairman of the National Cricket Academy by the Indian board.

However, Shastri, who has agreed in principle to take up the assignment, has sought a day or two to confirm his acceptance to the BCCI and commit himself to the high-profile job. "Shastri has agreed in principle to take over as NCA chairman but has said he would get back to the board after seeing into his commitments," the BCCI treasurer N Srinivasan said.

Shastri takes over from Ajay Shirke, who was made acting chairman of the Bangalore-based academy after Kapil Dev was sacked from the post for signing up with the Indian Cricket League. Kapil had refused to step down as chairman of the ICL's executive board even after the BCCI refused permission for the league.

The BCCI's general meeting held in Mumbai today came to a common consensus that Shastri should be made the chairman.
