Supreme Court to hear BCCI Appeal after two weeks

On Wednesday, 22nd July 2020 the Supreme Court agreed to hear several pleas including one filed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Recently the BCCI passed an amendment in its constitution which helps to decide the tenure of the board’s president and secretary (Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah respectively). 

The board urged the court to revise a rule in its constitution which states that administrators have to receive a 3-year break after 6 successive years in the national or other state boards. This cooling-off period was recommended by the Justice RM Lodha committee on cricket administration reforms in India.

A bench consisting of Chief Justice Bobde and Justice L. Nageswara Rao said that the court would not be able to hear the plea next week as it will be hearing the Maratha Reservation case which would extend over days.

The application for BCCI’s hearing was not listed but mentioned. Chief Justice said that separate applications filed by the Tamil Nadu and Himachal Pradesh Cricket Associations would also be heard in the next hearing which is scheduled after 15 days.

The Comptroller and Auditor General of India also filed an interlocutory application in the court on 4th July 2020. This application requests to be excused of nominating a representative to the apex council of the BCCI and other state associations. 

If the court rescues CAG from this order, it will result in a modification of the entire council structure. Currently, the board apex council consists of nine members. Five office-bearers, a councilor, a male and female cricketer representative each and the CAG appointed nominee.
