BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has got the green signal to continue in the post for some more time. The Supreme Court agreed to amend the cooling off period rules. But..?
- Relief for BCCI President Ganguly
- Minor change in cooling off period rules
- Dada will continue in office for another three years
What exactly is this cooling off period? The Lodha Committee appointed by Supreme Court brought some rules in the board for reforms in BCCI. As part of that, no one can hold any position in the board for three years after holding office for two consecutive terms under the BCCI. After this cooling off period, he can take up the post in BCCI again. But… the cooling off period of the office bearers has been severely criticized. Strong objections came from the state cricket associations under the BCCI. In the end, Sourav Ganguly and Jai Shah were also in danger of losing their positions.
Sourav Ganguly was the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) for two terms before assuming the post of BCCI president. With that.. according to the rules of cooling off period, there is no possibility for him to continue as BCCI president after this September. But.. the Supreme Court amended the cooling off period provision. Six consecutive years in the same post? Ordered to implement cooling off period. Ganguly, who took over as the BCCI president in October 2019, will continue in the position till 2015.
