BCCI decides to seek Supreme Court’s approval to relax tenure reform

The Sourav Ganguly-led BCCI has decided to seek the Supreme Court’s approval to water down administrative reforms on tenure cap for its office-bearers and named Secretary Jay Shah as its representative for the ICC chief executives’ committee meeting.

The Board’s 88th Annual General Meeting held in Mumbai today. As per the current constitution, an office-bearer who has served two three-year terms, either at the BCCI or at the state association, goes into a compulsory three-year cooling-off period.

Mr Ganguly, who took charge on October 23, was to vacate office next year but a dilution could see him continue till 2024. The current dispensation wants the cooling-off period to kick in only after the individual has finished two terms that is six years, at the board and state association separately.
