BCCI decides to dilute the Lodha reform on tenure in AGM, to seek the approval of the SC

MUMBAI: The Sourav led by Ganguly BCCI on Sunday he decided to dilute the administrative reforms ordered by the Supreme Court on the tenure limit for its office holders, seeking to clear the way for the former captain to obtain an extension at the end of his nine-month term.

The decision was made at the 88th Annual General Meeting of the Board and will require the approval of the apex court.

All proposed amendments have been approved and will be sent to the Supreme Court, a senior official told PTI.

As per the current constitution, an office-bearer who has served two three-year terms, either at the BCCI or at the state association, goes into a compulsory three-year cooling-off period.

Ganguly, who took over on October 23, would leave office next year, but a dilution could lead him to continue until 2024.
