Ganguly Shah Hearing LIVE – BCCI Supreme Court Hearing: If Tuesday’s proceedings are anything to go by, it looks like BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah will be getting new LIFELINE from the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court, BCCI and the SC-appointed amicus curiae reached a preliminary consensus on Tuesday to amend the BCCI’s constitution to allow the president, secretary and other office holders two consecutive terms, regardless of their previous innings in state associations. The court, meanwhile, said it would resume the hearing on Wednesday afternoon. No indication was given whether it would pass judgment today or not: Follow Live Updates on Ganguly Shah BCCI Hearing & Indian Cricket on InsideSport.IN.

What happened in the HOF on Tuesday?

  • The Supreme Court is considering Tuesday whether the three-year cooling-off period for office holders of India’s Board of Trustees for Cricket should take effect only after they have completed two consecutive terms in the top cricket body.
  • A bench headed by Judge DY Chandrachud verbally noted that imposing a three-year cooling-off period after just one term in office would be “too strict.”
  • A three-year cooling off period after just one three-year term in office is really too tight. People should have the opportunity to get to know them… You have networks, you have to deal with international counterparts,” remarked Judge Chandrachud.
  • The court’s suggestions came while considering a plea from BCCI for permission to amend the constitution.

The Supreme Court has strongly objected to BCCI’s argument about abolishing the age limit of 70. While the BCCI argued that the experience is necessary in management and administration, the SC replied referring to the structure of England and Cricket Australia. The bank asked, “Do you see 75+ people managing ECB and CA.”

The BCCI also wants the cooling-off period of 9 years to be removed. Also during the cooling-off period, BCCI states that the candidates must be able to participate in elections in state associations.

“12 years without a cooling off period is too long…. What we can say is that if you have one term in state and one term in BCCI no cool down, but the moment you have two terms then cool down,” Supreme Court says.

Kapil Sibal, who represents the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, argues that the cooling off period should be separated into the state association and BCCI.

“I think it’s reasonable, if you have 6 years in the state, there should be a cooling off period in the state after that. But if you have 3 years BCCI, you don’t need a cooling off period,” Sibal argues.

However, now that BCCI is backed by Amicas Curae Maninder Singh, the Supreme Court, consisting of Just DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli, may change its position. The second day of the hearing is on Wednesday, when the bank will again listen to the arguments of BCCI lawyers.

What did Supreme Court-appointed BCCI Amicas Curae suggest? “If a person has served one term of three years as an office holder of a state association and then becomes a BCCI office holder of BCCI, he or she must be able to serve two consecutive terms or 6 years in BCCI.”

If the SC agrees, Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah could serve another two years of BCCI before entering a partnership period. Both have already completed 3 years in BCCI after being elected in 2019. Both had served in state associations. Ganguly was Cricket Association of Bengal President while Shah was in Gujarat Cricket Association.

What to expect from the BCCI vs Supreme Court battle on Day 2?

  • BCCI had proposed to abolish the cooling-off period for President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah to continue their functions despite the end of their respective terms.
  • Before taking up their position, Shah served with the Gujarat Cricket Association while Ganguly was the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal.
  • The last hearing on the same matter took place in April, but the matter remained unresolved.
  • The BCCI had filed a request to change its status in 2019, watering down the cooling off period and conflicts of interest and changes to the disqualification criteria.

The BCCI has sought in its proposed amendment the abolition of a cooling off period for its office holders, allowing Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah to remain in office as president and secretary, despite having spent six years with the respective state cricket associations.

A bench of Judges DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli told Advocate General Tushar Mehta, who appeared before the BCCI, that it would hear the case along with other matters related to the functioning of the cricket. The Supreme Court asked Senior Advocate Maninder Singh, who has been appointed amicus curiae in this case, following the appointment of Senior Advocate PS Narasimha, as Judge of the Supreme Court, to collect all requests for intervention and put them before the Court so that he can have a brief idea about the problems.

Original petitioner Aditya Verma, who initially took the matter to the highest court, appeared in person and said that there are many irregularities in the Bihar Cricket Association and that the constitution is being amended without the court’s approval. Mehta had previously told the court that according to previous orders, the constitution can only be changed with the permission of the court, which is why the cricket authority has filed a request in this regard.

The BCCI’s plea is to amend the Constitution regarding the terms of office of its office holders, including its president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah, by abolishing the mandatory cooling off period between terms of office of office holders in cricket associations and the BCCI. Earlier, the Justice RM Lodha-led commission had recommended reforms in the BCCI that have been accepted by the highest court.

The BCCI’s constitution, which has been approved by the highest court, establishes a mandatory three-year cooling off period for anyone who has served two consecutive terms of three years each in the state cricket association or the BCCI. While Ganguly was an office holder in the Cricket Association of Bengal, Shah had served in the Gujarat Cricket Association.
