Sourav Ganguly-led BCCI on Sunday decided to dilute the Supreme Court-mandated administrative reforms on tenure cap for its office-bearers as this will get to clear the path for the former captain to get an extension at the end of his nine-month tenure.
The decision was taken at the Board’s 88th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and will require SC’s approval.
“All the proposed amendments have been approved and will be forwarded to the Supreme Court,” a top official told agencies.
As per the current laws, 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.
