From IndianCaptain to @BCCI president.

To be in a position where I can make a difference along with the team would be extremely satisfying. Hopefully, in the next few months we can put everything in place and bring back normalcy in Indian cricket," Ganguly had told reporters.Ganguly will be able to serve as the BCCI president till September 2020, as he has also been holding posts in the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) for the past five years where he currently serves as the president. An administrator can only serve six years on the trot.When asked about the priorities after winning the BCCI elections, Ganguly said: "For me, my biggest focus will be first-class cricket. I have been very vocal about looking after first-class players especially the amount of time they give to cricket because that's your base and strength.""I have written many a time in the last three years that enumerations need to increase many folds so that is going to be my first priority," he said. The BCCI elections are scheduled to be held on October 23 but with Ganguly being the only candidate to file his nomination for the top post of Indian cricket, he is set to be elected unopposed.
