All you need to know about the maiden Indian Cricketers Association polls

Between October 11 to 13, the Indian Cricketers Association (ICA) will conduct its inaugural election. The ICA came into being in July after the BCCI recognised the players body on the condition that it was meant only for retired cricketers – men and women – and that it would be a non-profit organization. The BCCI said the ICA was meant for conserving the welfare of former players.

On Wednesday, the ICA released a final list of eligible members that could vote for the various positions. Here is an explainer on the ICA elections and why they matter.

How will the members cast their votes?

Through e-voting.

When will the results be announced?

On October 15.
