IS Bindra, the principal advisor to the chief executive of the ICC, has been unanimously re-elected as president of the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) at its Annual General Meeting held in Mohali. Bindra has been president since 1978 and the new term ensures he will remain in the post till 2012.

Lalit Modi, the chairman and commissioner of the IPL, was also re-elected as vice-president while former Punjab batsman MP Pandove retained his position as the PCA's honorary secretary, a post he has held since 1981. "Among two key recommendations that were made at the AGM is to give boost to cricket in rural areas and provide more support to regional cricket centres," Pandove told PTI after the meeting.

Prabhu Chawla, the editor of the India Today, was named the chairman of the media committee while Kamal Bindra, wife of IS Bindra, will head the women's cricket committee for 2008-09.

The PCA also released the names of the members elected to both the junior and senior selection committees, the tournament fixture committee, the women's selection committee, and the coaching commitee.
