When the former Indian Captain, Sourav Ganguly got announced as the President of BCCI, Indian fans went overboard hoping that much better days will come for the Indian teams. More ever, the Prince of Kolkata acted accordingly and took some brave decisions right from the word go. But as per the norms of the BCCI he was actually appointed as the President for a year.
But now, the BCCI has diluted Supreme Court-mandated administrative reforms on tenure cap for its office-bearers. As per the current constitution, an office-bearer who has served two three-year terms, either at BCCI or state association, goes into a compulsory three-year cooling-off period.
The decision had taken at the Board's 88th Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Mumbai on Sunday, 1 December, and will require the apex court's approval. "All the proposed amendments have approved and will get forwarded to the Supreme Court," a top official said.
Ganguly was to vacate office next year but a dilution could see him continue till 2024 following SC's approval.
