BCCI President Sourav Ganguly To Support Virat Kohli In Every Possible Way
Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly has been formally elected unopposed as the new Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President. Ganguly formally took over as the new supremo at the apex body’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Mumbai on October 23 (Wednesday).
Ganguly is likely to serve only 9 months as BCCI president as the cooling-off period clause in the new BCCI constitution makes it mandatory for board officials to step down after 6 years in office. Sourav Ganguly has also been at the helm of Cricket Association of Bengal of quite a few years now.
He took over the role in the aftermath of former ICC President Jagmohan Dalmiya’s demise. Ganguly, who followed Dalmiya as his mentor wants to follow his path in his new journey. Meanwhile, there was no need for elections after days of lobbying that went on before the filing of nominations.Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli. Credit: Getty
