Today, Sourav Ganguly’s term as the BCCI President is supposed to get over. Last year, he took over the position in October and as per the book, a break of three years has to be given before returning to the set up of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) or any other association. However, his status quo will remain there.
Although, if BCCI clears him along with the majority of other national boards than he can hold a position in the ICC cadre. But BCCI seeks a reconsideration approach regarding the cooling-off norm and that the hearing will be on 17th August.
Ganguly has completed a period of six long years as an administrator apart from his vital role in the Cricket Association of West Bengal. In the meantime, the board has made an appeal to the Supreme Court for extending the tenure of Sourav Ganguli and the Secretary, Jay Shah.
The extension of their tenures will only be endorsed by the Supreme Court. Aditya Verma, the IPL spot-fixing case petitioner said the lawyers that the cooling-off tenure won’t be opposed for BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly, and the secretary as the case have already reached the apex court.
