Sourav Ganguly, the former Captain of the Indian Cricket Team, on the 23rd of October, took over as the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI.)
Sourav Ganguly is the 39th president of the BCCI and was elected unopposed as he was the only candidate to file his nomination for the top post.
Mr. Ganguly said, “We haven’t received any money from ICC in the last few years. Money in the sense what we deserve. India generates 70-80 percent of the revenue. So that’s going to be one of the agendas. Talks and discussions need to happen and we have to find a solution to this as this is not leading anywhere.” He further added, “As a team, we have a lot of things to look after actually. We have to get the house in order, administration in order and most importantly cricket on the field. The cricket has been brilliant on the field since we crashed out of the World Cup 2019 and hopefully, that will continue. And this is our job to create an environment that the boys can go out and excel themselves.”
While Sourav Ganguly is the new BCCI President, Arun Singh Dhumal is the new treasurer of the BCCI and Jay Shah is the new secretary.
Besides, Jayesh George is the joint secretary and Mahim Verma is the new vice president of the BCCI.
The new administration of the BCCI would take over their respective posts from the 23rd of October.
