The Supreme Court has paved the way for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly to extend his tenure. The apex court, in its ruling on Wednesday, 14 September, said that it would allow an office bearer in BCCI to hold office for two consecutive terms even if they were in office in a state association for one term.
