BCCI on Sunday, December 1 decided to bring change to Supreme Court-mandated administrative reforms on tenure cap for its office-bearers. The top cricketing board of the country is seeking to clear the path for the former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly to get an extension at the end of his nine-month tenure.
“All the proposed amendments have been approved and will be forwarded to the Supreme Court,” a top official was quoted as saying by PTI.
The decision was taken at the Board’s 88th Annual General Meeting and will require Supreme court’s approval.
According to 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.
Ganguly, who took charge on October 23, was to vacate office next year but a dilution could see him continue till 2024, the news report added.
