This committee will elect a new selection committee, whose tenure will be 3 years. He further said, the head coach has already been selected. A new selection committee will also be elected in the first meeting of the CAC.

BCCI is yet to form CAC due to conflict of interest
The BCCI is yet to form a Cricket Advisory Committee due to conflict of interest. After assuming the post of board president, Ganguly himself also said, "Due to conflict of interest, many cricketers are reluctant to become members of the Advisory Committee." Because he fears that his name will also be dragged into controversy after this.
The BCCI, in its petition, sought to extend the cooling-off period, before the BCCI had decided to decide on the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) only after hearing in the Supreme Court. The board's petition is scheduled to be heard in the Supreme Court in January. This includes a conflict of interest as well as approval for the proposal to extend tenure at the AGM. The BCCI has also sought relaxation in the 'cooling off' period in its petition, so that Chairman Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jai Shah can 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.
