After being elected as the President of the BCCI, Ganguly said that nothing beats the feeling of being an Indian captain. In an interview with India Today, he also mentioned that his priority will be about looking after first-class cricket. “I had requested to the CoA and they have not listened. Ranji Trophy cricket will be the focus. To take care of cricketers' financial interest," he said after his name was finalised in an informal meeting of BCCI state units. He also said that being the BCCI President is more of a challenge as India is a powerhouse of talent.
