New BCCI boss Sourav Ganguly to take guard on October 23

MUMBAI, October 15: At 47, nearly two decades after he first led Team India, Sourav Ganguly has climbed the next big step in his career. On Monday afternoon, 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. (TNN)
