Ganguly to assume charge as BCCI chief on 23 Oct

Sourav Ganguly has climbed the next big step in his career. Ganguly along with BCCI's secretary-elect Jay Shah and other nominated office-bearers, arrived at the BCCI office to file his nomination for the post of BCCI president, unopposed. The new team assumes office on October 23.

'First class cricket will remain my first priority,' Ganguly said, and also spoke of getting India its fair share at the International Cricket Council, tackling conflict of interest and repairing BCCI's tarnished image. Reacting to the development, Committee of Administrators chief Vinod Rai said that Ganguly is the right man for the job.

“If Sourav Ganguly becomes the president then it’s very happy development. I mean former player and experienced person like him who handled the Cricket Association of Bengal, coming into cricket administration, is an excellent development,” Rai said.
