The earlier ombudsman was Justice (Retired) AP Shah, who worked with the BCCI for one season.

While a few names of retired judges are already with the board, it wants to broaden the pool of prospective candidates and would like its state associations to suggest a few more names.

"We have shortlisted a few names. We will soon decide on the ombudsman," Chaudhary had said after Wednesday's Special General Meeting.
