With Roger Binny likely to become the new President of BCCI, Sourav Ganguly makes his way out in spite of showing interest in continuing the role as the BCCI President.
Ganguly Set to Step Down as BCCI President
An official statement on the matter and his impending exit as the BCCI president is yet to come but Ganguly has confirmed that he will ‘move on to something else’.
Speaking at a Bandhan Bank event, Ganguly said confirmed that he has been an administrator for a long time and is now looking to move on to something else.
“I have been an administrator and I will move on to something else,” he said at the event. “Whatever you do in life the best days are when you played for India. I have been president of BCCI and I will go on to do bigger things.”
“I never believed in history but the feeling in the past was east lacked talent to play at that level. You don’t become an Ambani or Narendra Modi in one day. You have to work for months and years to get there,” he further said.
Roger Binny is all but set to replace Ganguly at the helm. He has already filed his nomination papers and is likely to be elected unopposed. While Ganguly is on his way out as the BCCI president, Jay Shah will continue to remain the board’s secretary.
