Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla, senior BJP politician Arun Jaitley and eminent media personality Rajat Sharma have been named on the board of the high-profile Hockey India's (HI) proposed league that will be held in January-February.

Hockey India (HI) secretary-general Narinder Batra, who will also be the league's chairman, said the appointments of these personalities from outside hockey circles would enhance the profile of the league.

"We are honoured that Rajeev Shukla, Arun Jaitley and Rajat Sharma have accepted our invitation to be on the Board," he said.

"We are sure that the Hockey India League will gain from Mr. Shukla's knowledge gained as Chairman of the Indian Premier League Governing Council and in public life, Mr. Jaitley's vast experience as lawyer and sports administrator and Mr. Rajat Sharma's experience as a media personality," Batra said.
