India, May 23 -- The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has reached the Supreme Court with an application that not only demands extended tenures for president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah but also seeks to wriggle out of other requirements meant to reform the board's functioning.

Appointed for a nine-month tenure last October, both Ganguly and Shah were to step down by this July, as per the BCCI Constitution Rule 6.4 that stated that an office bearer who has served two consecutive terms either in state or in the BCCI (or both) shall have to go for a three-year cooling off period.
