New Delhi: Former World Cup-winning cricketer Roger Binny is in the race for the next president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). As per the report of national media, Binny is said to be the front runner for the successor of Saurav Ganguly.
Similarly, Jay Shah is expected to continue as the BCCI secretary.
A meeting among the top officials of the BCCI had been convened recently and discussed about the next elections. A second round meeting will also be held soon for the purpose, national media reported.
The Supreme Court had recently allowed Ganguly and Shah to continue with their posts by also allowing the Indian board to tweak its constitution.
The apex court also accepted BCCI’s plea to waive the cooling-off period for office bearers who have completed 1 term (3 years) in state association & 1 term (3 years) in BCCI.
SC also said that the cooling-off period would come only after 2 consecutive terms in office which means that an office bearer be in office for a term of 6 years in State Association & then for 6 years in BCCI in one go. The cooling-off period would apply for 3 years thereafter.
