The Board of Control for Cricket in India, in its first Annual General Meeting in three years on December 1 in Mumbai, is going to propose a constitutional amendment that could lead to president Sourav Ganguly’s tenure being increased. BCCI secretary Jay Shah is said to have sent out a notice to all the members of the board, listing a 12-point agenda for the upcoming AGM. However, the biggest development from the AGM is likely to be the rule-change for the cooling-off period of office bearers. According to the notice sent out by board secretary Shah to the members, the existing rule is proving to be counter-productive to the BCCI. This rule change will allow BCCI president Ganguly and secretary Shah to complete a three-year term in office. The one point which became the center of attention was the proposed change in the existing rule which forbids office-bearer, who has held any post for two consecutive terms either in BCCI or state association, to contest any further election until the completion of a cooling-off period of three years.
Indian cricket elections have always had a strong link with political forces. Sourav Ganguly didn't deny a BJP hand in his coronation as the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. Ganguly has been tasked with heading one of the world’s richest sporting bodies—the Board of Control for Cricket in India. After Ganguly becomes president of BCCI, the rumors of the former India cricketer joining the ruling party in India started doing the rounds. There were speculations about a deal between Ganguly and Shah over the BCCI presidentship in return of the former representing the BJP in Bengal for elections in 2021. However, Ganguly has rubbished all such reports, saying, there was no political development in his meeting with Union Home Minister.
