The Sourav Ganguly-led BCCI on Sunday named secretary Jay Shah as its representative for the ICC chief executives' committee meeting.

BCCI committee meeting also decided to seek the Supreme Court's approval to water down administrative reforms on tenure cap for its office-bearers. The decisions to seek apex court's approval for dilution of tenure cap, which is aimed at clearing the path for an extended stint for Ganguly, and appoint Shah for the ICC meet were taken at the Board's 88th Annual General Meeting (AGM) here.

"All the proposed amendments have been approved and will be forwarded to the Supreme Court (for its approval)," PTI said quoted a top official as saying. As per the current constitution, an office-bearer who has served two three-year terms, either at the BCCI or at the state association, goes into a compulsory three-year cooling-off period. Ganguly, who took charge on October 23, was to vacate office next year but a dilution could see him continue till 2024.

Shah was named India's representative to attend future meetings of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) chief executives committee. BCCI CEO Rahul Johri was the Board's representative for these meetings when its administration was being handled by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).
