Former BCCI head Anurag Thakur’s plea for impeachment with the Honourable Supreme Court (SC) over the latter’s previous decision to control the board’s administration using a tight set of reins, the SC went on to add a “cooling-off” clause as amendment for current and past administrators of the Indian Cricket Board.

And that has inadvertently paved the way for a likely possibility of Sourav Ganguly becoming the next BCCI president.

The Supreme Court decided to set aside some of the recommendations of the panel led by retd. Justice R.M.Lodha, and also approved a new draft constitution that could force the BCCI to look at getting a former Indian cricketer at the helm of affairs.

Ganguly, who currently serves as the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal, would be eligible for the BCCI presidential role if he gave up on his current task at hand.

And unlike previous times, he would not need a cool-off period before he can contest for the same.

The BCCI has been in the limelight for all the wrong reasons, such as corruption, improper administration, and so on.

Ganguly’s arrival at the top of the institution could effectively be of help for it to regain its goodwill among the cricketing fraternity.
