Sourav Ganguly term officially ends as BCCI President
Today, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly officially ended his term as the president of the board. According to the Lodha Committee reforms, Ganguly’s term as the BCCI President ended today, 27 July, leaving the Indian cricket board without a heading body.
Sourav Ganguly had taken over the prestigious position in October 2019 and has to take a three-year break before returning to BCCI set up, as he will complete six years as the administrator which includes his position with the Cricket Association of Bengal.
The board had filed an appeal in the Supreme Court for seeking extension on Ganguly and Jay Shah’s (Secretary) tenures to full three year terms. The court will decide on the fate of the two on 17 August.
According to Lodha reforms, an office bearer may stay at a state association or BCCI for six consecutive years before going into mandated three year cooling-off period.
“The BCCI has asked for half-a-dozen amendments in the new constitution that was approved by the Supreme Court in August 2018. It remains to be seen if Justice Bobde and Justice Rao will allow sweeping changes in the constitution that was built on the recommendations of a former CJI, Justice RM Lodha.” source INSIDESPORT.
