On Thursday, former India captain Sourav Ganguly broke his silence regarding his time with the BCCI by making a rather cryptic comment. This week, it was reported that Roger Binny, a former Indian cricketer, will take over as president of the board instead of Ganguly, who will not serve a second term. In 2019, Ganguly, who is 50 years old, became the president of BCCI.
Ganguly broke his silence in response to rumours about his BCCI tenure, as the board will hold elections for several positions on October 18.
Ganguly gave a hint that his time at the BCCI might be over when he spoke at an event in Kolkata.
“I was the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal for five years. I have been president of BCCI for years. After all these terms, you have to leave and go. As an administrator, you have to contribute a lot and make things better for the team. Me being a player, who was around for a long time, understood it. I enjoyed my time as an administrator thoroughly. You cannot play forever and you cannot remain in administration forever,”
Sourav Ganguly became president of the CAB in 2015, he began his career in administration. He took over as chair for BCCI in October 2019
During his tenure, the nation’s cricket ecosystem was significantly harmed by the Covid-19 pandemic; However, after the Indian Premier League was held in the UAE in 2020 and 2021, the BCCI eventually overcame the obstacles to bring international cricket and the Indian Premier League back to the country.
