The 88th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is set to take place on Sunday, December 1 at the Cricket Centre. Quite a few changes are expected in the BCCI constitution, written by the now defunct Committee of Administrators (CoA) and accepted by the Supreme Court back in August 2018.
Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary has put forth modifications to six key clauses of the new BCCI constitution while issuing the notice for the AGM. The BCCI would now need to place the amendments before the Supreme Court for approval in order to make them legal and effective. Thereafter, the BCCI can implement the changes.
As per reports in Sportstar, explanatory notes have also been given for the benefits of 38 members in the agenda notice. The changes seek to change the cooling-off period for the office bearers, especially the president and the secretary. The board has proposed that the cooling-off period should come into effect after two consecutive term of three years each.
The BCCI with a new governance was formed on October 23
Moreover, it shouldn’t consider stints in the State association. As per the BCCI, it’s also not practical to seek the Supreme Court’s approval for every amendment. One of the proposals included was to remove the age cap of 70 for BCCI’s representative to the ICC and similar organisations. The BCCI with a new governance was formed on October 23.
Sourav Ganguly, the former Indian captain, was appointed as the president of the Indian cricket board. He was elected unopposed along with secretary Jay Shah. The AGM is most likely to take into account the recommendations of the Apex Council, the CEO and the committees and to propose policy directions to the Apex Council.
Reports of the Ombudsman and Ethics Officer and report and recommendations of the Governing Council may also be taken into account to zero in on any decision. It now remains to be seen what are the changes that are eventually implemented.
As far as action on the field is concerned, India will play the West Indies in three ODIs and as many T20Is, starting December 6.
