New Delhi: Following Supreme Court’s approval of BCCI’s new draft constitution with some slight alternations, former Indian cricket skipper Sourav Ganguly might become the next BCCI President, as per reports in the media.
The Supreme Court recently set aside some of the recommendations of the Justice Lodha Committee, approving a new draft constitution with a few modifications.
The BCCI is reportedly looking at getting a former Indian cricketer at the helm of affairs. The Indian board is said to be eyeing Ganguly in order to give the BCCI an image makeover.
According to a report in The New Indian Express, most of the current and former administrators are ineligible for the post because of the cooling-off period.
Ganguly currently serves as the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal, and if he gives off the post, where he is in his third term, he would be eligible for the BCCI role without a cooling-off period.
Ganguly announced retirement from international cricket in 2008 and played in the IPL until 2012 before moving towards administration.
