Sourabh Ganguly set to be president of BCCI: Sources

Former Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly is likely to become the new President of the Board for Control in India. With the elections unlikely to be held at BCCI’s Annual General Meeting on October 23.

In a unanimous stand against the Supreme court-appointed Committee of Administrators functioning. All members of the BCCI came together in an informal setting at a five-star hotel in Mumbai on Sunday.

Former captain Sourav Ganguly emerged as consensus candidates to be BCCI’s new President after Brijesh Patel appeared to have grabbed the coveted post.

Brijesh Patel is set to take over as IPL chairman. October 14 is the last date to file the nominations for BCCI elections which is scheduled to take place on October 23.

47th-year-old Ganguly, who is currently the president of Cricket Association of Bengal, will have to demit his post in September 2020 as he will go into the compulsory cooling-off period.

Brijesh, backed by Tail Nadu strongman N Srinivasan, emerged Presidential candidates. When Ganguly remained non-committal on campaigning for the BJP in the 2021 state assembly elections.

However, when most of the state units opposed the understanding, things changed dramatically. Yes, Brijesh was running for the President’s post with N Srinivasan actively lobbying for him. But, there was stiff resistance against him.

We are happy Sourab is the new President, a senior official from North East affiliated unit, top PTI.

The choice for President’s post was always between Ganguly and Patel and the former was finally accepted as a unanimous candidate.
