Mumbai sources stated that the sourav ganguly led bcci on sunday 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 and the decisions to seek apex court's approval for dilution of tenure cap, which is aimed at clearing the path for an extended stint for Ganguly, and appoint Shah for the ICC meeting were taken at the Board's 88th Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Furthermore "At the end of the day, the court will decide," Ganguly said in a press conference after the AGM. Perhaps 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. Meanwhile Ganguly, who took charge on october 23, was to vacate office next year but a dilution could see him continue till 2024.
Moreover the current dispensation wants the cooling-off period to kick in only after the individual has finished two terms (six years), at the board and state association separately.
Perhaps the move, if approved, will also pave the way for Shah to get an extension as time left in his current tenure is also less than a year and Shah was named India's representative to attend future meetings of the international cricket Council's (ICC) chief executives committee.
