The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will hold its first annual general meeting (AGM) today (Sunday).  Many important issues will be discussed in this meeting, including the laxity in some reformist measures approved by the Supreme Court, and the formation of cricket committees like Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC).

 CoA runs for 33 months
 The meeting is also likely to discuss appointing a representative of the board to the ICC.  The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) operated the board for 33 months following which Ganguly-led new office-bearers took over the office last month.

 Ganguly's term will increase
 Ganguly's current tenure of nine months may extend if the BCCI lays down reformist steps.  Retired Justice Lodha Committee's reformist steps have been approved by the Supreme Court.  According to the current constitution, if an officer completes a total of 6 years' tenure including the board and state association, he will have to take a mandatory break of three years.  The incumbent officials want the mandatory break rule to be applicable only if an officer has completed a 6-year term in the board or state association.

A new Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) may also be formed with the return of stalwarts Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman.  Earlier, the current board chairman and former captain Saurabh Ganguly was also in this committee.  Since he has now become the BCCI chief, he can no longer be a part of the committee
