Mumbai: Rajeev Shukla was appointed the new chairman of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council on Monday, a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) release said.

Shukla resigned from the post of IPL chairman in June, 2013, following a scandal over corruption and spot-fixing in the tournament.

He replaces Ranjib Biswal who was the interim chairman of the council.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly and current team director Ravi Shastri were also named in the governing council.
