Former Indian captain, Sourav Ganguly, arrived at Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) office in Mumbai to file his nomination for the post of BCCI President.
He has been the President of Cricket Association of Bengal for the past five years and an administrator can only serve six years. However, it will only be a short reign for the 47-year-old as he will have to resign from his post as the President of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) and will have to go on a cooling period under the new rules.
"That's the rule. So we will have to deal with it. My priority will be to look after first-class cricketers." he said after his name was finalized in an informal meeting of BCCI state units. Ganguly further mentioned "I am happy with the appointment because this is the time when BCCI's image has got hampered and it's a great opportunity for me to do something. Whether you are elected unopposed or otherwise, it's a big responsibility because it is the biggest organization in the world of cricket. It will be a challenge,"
Ganguly is expected to be the only presidential nominee.
