The Supreme Court hearing on Wednesday was postponed for 2 weeks on a petition filed for the tenure of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Chief Saurabh Ganguly and Secretary Jai Shah. Ganguly's term is to end on July 27 while Jai Shah's term is over.
According to the new constitution of the BCCI, it is mandatory to go on a three-year cooling-off period after a six-year term in a state association or board. Ganguly and Shah took office in October last year and then had only 9 months left in their six-year tenure in the state and national unit.

Meanwhile, on April 21, the BCCI filed a petition in the apex court seeking extension of the tenure of Shah and Ganguly. The board wants the tenure of these two to be extended to 4 years by 2025.
Ganguly, former captain of Team India, has been the chairman of the Bengal Cricket Board (CAB) for 5 years and 3 months, due to which he had only 9 months left as BCCI Chief. Jai has also been a secretary in the Gujarat Cricket Association. Ganguly and Shah can complete their 3-year term after relaxation of the cooling-off period rule.
This petition filed in the apex court stated that the board has approved the extension of tenure of its office bearers by amending the rule to go into the cooling of period applicable from 9 August 2018 at the AGM held last year. According to the amendment, the rule of Ganguly and Shah to go on a cooling-off period will be applicable only when they complete 6 consecutive years in the BCCI.
The controversy erupted earlier this month when Alka Rehni Bhardwaj (Indian Audit and Accounts Service Officer), Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) representative at BCCI, attended Jai Shah's BCCI Apex meeting on July 17. Raised objections The reason for this was due to his tenure as per the new BCCI constitution. (Input from agency)
