BCCI Supreme Court Verdict: BCCI Elections: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCC) is all set for fresh elections at its AGM this month.

But as things stand, 15 state associations are ready to back Shah to succeed Ganguly as new President. As for Ganguly, he might be tempted to contest ICC Elections.

Many in state associations have a favourable view of Jay Shah. They believe holding IPL in Maharashtra was only possible because of Shah’s efforts. They also believe that the credit goes to Shah for BCCI pocketing Rs 48,390 Crore from sale of IPL Media Rights. Hence, Shah has grown into power and has eclipsed Ganguly.

“It’s high time Shah takes charge of the Indian board, and all associations are ready to back him,” a member of a state association told Indian Express.

BCCI Supreme Court Verdict: What did the court say?

  • The Supreme Court on Wednesday green signalled constitutional amendment, removing cooling off period after three years at State Association and three years at BCCI.
  • Instead, the SC revised the cooling period, saying office bearers can serve 6 years in state and 6 years in BCCI.
  • It will enable both Ganguly & Shah to continue for another three years before going for a mandatory cooling off period from BCCI.
  • A Bench led by Justice D. Y. Chandrachud orally observed that imposing a cooling-off period of three years after only one term in office would be “too stringent”.
  • A cooling-off period of three years after just one term of three years in office is really too stringent. People should be allowed to get acquainted… You will have networks, deal with international counterparts,” Justice Chandrachud remarked.
  • The court’s suggestions came while examining a plea by BCCI for permission to amend its Constitution.

Supreme Court Revised Proposal on Cooling Off:

  1. Three years in State and 6 years in BCCI.
  2. 6 years in State and immediately 6 years in BCCI.

It means that a candidate can serve 6 years (two terms) in state association and then become BCCI office bearer without needing a cooling off period. However, after completing two terms in BCCI or six years, there will be a mandatory cooling-off period at BCCI. The individual can go back to state association as he or she would have served cooling off period at state association.

Sourav Ganguly headed to ICC? It should come as no surprise that former India captain Sourav Ganguly has aspirations to take up the ICC chairman’s job once Greg Barclay steps down following the completion of his term in November. If Barclay does step down without contesting reelection, Ganguly may move away from BCCI post, handing the reins to current secretary Jay Shah.

While Ganguly quashed the move saying it as rumours, the move could happen quicker than ever. “See, these are all speculations. These are not right. This doesn’t happen so fast. These are all in BCCI’s and Government’s hands,” Ganguly said during an India Today interview.

N Srinivasan to represent BCCI at ICC?

The changes that Supreme Court has brought in also allow someone like N Srinivasan to return to power. With the age cap removed, he is a strong contender to represent BCCI at the ICC meetings.

It was Srinivasan, the tough as nails negotiator, who had made India powerhouse at the ICC Board Meetings during his tenure as chairman. The concept of ‘Big Three’ (India, Australia, England) getting the chunk of ICC revenue was mooted by Srinivasan but it didn’t actually take shape after he left office.

The Lodha recommendations did end his hopes of returning to global limelight but the Supreme Court green-lighting the amendment of age-cap and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta’s argument in front of the bench where he spoke about how these “old people” have more networking and negotiation powers has raised his hopes.
