The AGM will take into consideration a proposed amendment to the BCCI constitution that debars a person aged 70 years and above to be the Board’s rep at the ICC.

“See, representing the BCCI at the ICC is not a routine task that a person has to do. It’s not like holding the blog post of an office-bearer. A skilled individual who understands the ICC as well as has contacts can act in the best rate of interests of the BCCI as well as Indian cricket,” said a Board authorities.
