Dainik BhaskarDec 14, 2019, 03:13 PM IST Sports Desk. The BCCI will decide on its Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) and the National Selection Committee after a hearing in the Supreme Court in January. Last Sunday, the board approved the extension of the tenure of its office bearers by amending the recommendations of the Lodha Committee at the annual general meeting. However, approval of the Supreme Court will be required for this. The BCCI petition will be heard in the Supreme Court next month on the same matter.
In such a case, the selection committee headed by MSK Prasad can select the team for the 3-match T20 series against Sri Lanka.
CAC will be decided after hearing Supreme Court
According to BCCI sources, the top officials want to wait till the January hearing. Only then will the situation become clear regarding the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) and the new selection committee. In such a situation, it is not clear yet that the new or existing selection committee will be selected for the January-February tour of New Zealand in India.
The BCCI has sought relaxation in the 'cooling off' period in its petition, allowing Chairman Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jai Shah to complete their tenure instead of 10 months. The board also wants to change the section that requires court approval for any amendment to the constitution.
Mandatory break of 3 years in the constitution approved by the Supreme Court. According to the constitution approved by the Supreme Court, if an officer completes two years of three years in the BCCI or the Union of States, then he must take a mandatory break of three years (cooling off period). Will happen. Ganguly has been the chairman of the Bengal Cricket Board (CAB) for 5 years and 3 months. In October, he was elected the new president of BCCI. In this sense, he had only 9 months left. His tenure can be extended to 2024 after the proposal is approved.
The board will also seek clarification on the issue of conflict of interest in the Supreme Court
After the AGM on December 1, Sourav Ganguly said about the Cricket Advisory Committee and the conflict of interest, "CAC does not have much work. She selects only coaches and selectors. Once elected, the selection committee remains in office for 4 years and the coach for 3 years. So there is no need for a full time Cricket Advisory Committee. "So far it is (CAC) honorary, so if you pay its members, what is the basis of that?". The BCCI will also seek clarification on the issue at a hearing in the Supreme Court in January.
