"Among the rejections are age and tenure issue and the recommendation that government officials can't be the office-bearers in BCCI or its affiliated units," a source told PTI.
"We have decided on the same topic that was arrived at our last meeting. We will forward our suggestions to the BCCI immediately," CAB president Ganguly told reporters after the SGM but did not divulge much."

There has been an allegation of conflict of interest against the former India captain, who is an IPL governing council member and also a co-owner of a football club in the Indian Super League, along with industrialists Utsav Parekh, Harsh Neotia and Sanjiv Goenka who recently bought the Pune franchise in the T20 cricket tournament.

On the issue of conflict of interest, a top CAB official said that they had to 'accept it' as the Board had already agreed to comply to it.

"It's like a law, we had to say yes to it," the official said adding that the issue of one-state-one-association did not come up for discussion in the nearly 40-minute-long SGM attended by about 90 members.
