Today is the big day for the office bearers of BCCI which includes the names like Ganguly, Jay Shah and Jayesh George whose fate will be decided by the Supreme Court.
The case has been pending for months in Court and finally, a decision will be taken that whether the top office bearers can continue their position or not.
As per the latest constitution by BCCI which suggests that if any person is involved with state administrator or BCCI for six years at a stretch they will be given a three-year cooling off period wherein these three years they can’t hold any position in BCCI.
A two-judge bench headed by justice L Nageshwara Rao will be hearing on the matter on Thursday morning. As per the reports published at Outlook, both the judges have given this case as “high importance” and in spite of COVID-19 restrictions, the case related to the office bearers have been listed as the first case of the day.
In February this year, he had admonished Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta, the BCCI counsel, for repeatedly seeking adjournments. Justice Rao had said: “We can’t keep adjourning like this. We had adjourned six times. Don’t adjourn … we will not adjourn it… list on March 23.”
Former India skipper and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly recently said that he will decide on his future once the Supreme Court has a decision for him.
