The ceremony is slated to be held in Hyderabad on April 5.

IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla told reporters after the completion of IPL GC meet that the decision was taken at the Governing Council meeting today. Out of the five, four are former India captains.

However it was not known why former captain and current national coach Anil Kumble, an equal contributor along with these five during Indian cricket’s golden phase, has not been included in the felicitation list.
