Ravi Shastri appreciates Ganguly's appointment as BCCI chief

Head coach Ravi Shastri believes that with the appointment of Sourav Ganguly who has a vast experience in cricket administration as the new BCCI President, Indian cricket is moving in the right direction.

"My heartiest congratulations to Sourav for taking over as the BCCI president. His appointment is an indication that Indian cricket is moving in the right direction,"Shastri told The Times of India."He's always been a natural leader. When someone like him who already dipped his feet into cricket administration four or five years ago  takes over as president of the BCCI, it's a win-win for Indian cricket.

"These are difficult times for the Board and there's a lot of work to do to bring BCCI back on the path of glory. I wish him all the best in his stint," he added. Shastri also backed Ganguly's view of BCCI getting its dues from the International Cricket Council (ICC)
