NEW DELHI — An Indian sports superstar and a television star were recently named to the India Sports Council (ISSC) as members of its new governing body.
Mahagun Society founder and former cricket star Bishan Singh is one of the country’s most respected figures in the sport.
His name was announced on Monday as a member of the ISSC, which was established last month by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Singh, who is also a member in the board of the International Cricket Council (ICC), was also named as a commissioner for the countrys cricket federation, the Indian Cricketers Association (ICCA).
He is the only Indian professional sportsman to have won multiple titles in three different sports.
In December, the ISC appointed Bishanchen Singh as the chairman of its cricket committee.
In July, the agency announced it was looking for a board member to lead the cricket association.
He is now the president of the Indian cricket board.
The ISSC has a global mandate, which includes cricket, cricket-specific initiatives and a range of other sports, such as athletics and athletics-related sporting events.
It also runs an Indian sports marketing program, as well as India’s national and international cricket teams.
It also oversees the Indian national cricket team.
In addition to Singh, the board has members from the national team, the national cricket academy and the Indian team management.
It has appointed former India captain Sachin Tendulkar as the president.
