Saurav Ganguly-led BCCI on Sunday decided to relax the Supreme Court-approved administrative reforms limiting the tenure of its office bearers. The BCCI thus attempted to pave the way for furthering the 9-month tenure of former Indian captain Ganguly.
The decision was taken at the 88th Annual General Meeting of the BCCI and will require the approval of the Supreme Court to implement it. A top official said, "All the proposed amendments have been approved and will now be sent to the Supreme Court.
According to the current constitution, if an officer has completed two years of three years by joining BCCI or state association, then he will have to take a mandatory break of three years. Ganguly assumed the post of BCCI President on 23 October and will have to step down next year but he can continue in the post till 2024 after being given a waiver.
