The Supreme Court will be finally taking a decision on the plea of the BCCI that has been pending for the last two years.

According to the plea, the BCCI wants a review of the cooling-off laws.

In the law, the BCCI has particularly sought the Supreme Court to look into the matter of delinking the BCCI and the state associations.

This plea holds great value for the current office bearers- President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah.

Both of them will be completing six years in both their respective state associations as well as the BCCI.

And as per the BCCI’s constitution, an office bearer must adhere to a cooling period of three years after he completes six years in the office.

Ganguly has remained an office bearer in the Cricket Association of Bengal while Shah has served at the Gujarat Cricket Association.

The Supreme Court has decided to keep the hearing of the case for next week.

Moreover, if the Supreme Court upholds the plea, then it will be a win for both Ganguly and Shah.

The bench consisting of Chief Justice NV Ramana and Krishna Murari was made aware of the appeal by PS Patwalia who is representing BCCI.

Moreover, the BCCI will be having its Annual General Meeting in the coming months.

In the meeting, there will also be elections which are usually held in September-end.
