Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah set to complete full term as BCCI President and Secretary. Find how?

XtraTime Web Desk: In a new development in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the deck is likely to get cleared for President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah to complete their full term of three years in their respective posts.

According to a notice sent by the board secretary to its members, one of the agenda for the forthcoming 88th AGM on December 1 states the rule change laid down by COA.

Under the existing rule an office-bearer who has held any post for two consecutive terms either in BCCI or state association shall not be eligible to contest any further election until the completion of cooling off. According to the proposed ammended rule, a president and secretary who has served in such position for two consecutive terms in BCCI (not state association) shall not be eligible to contest without completion of cooling off. This proposed rule change clears the deck for president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah to complete a full term in office.

In another proposed rule change, only an office-bearer or a member of the apex council member over 70 years of age will be considered disqualified. That proposed rule change clears the deck for former BCCI president N Srinivasan to head to the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The constitutional rule changes can be amended by a 3/4th majority of the members at an AGM or SGM alone. Various cricket committees aling with new ombudsman and ethics officer will also be appointed at the AGM.
