Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly set to be named new BCCI President: Sources

Former Indian Cricket Captain Sourav Ganguly is likely to be the BCCI’s new President, sources said.

It is learnt that the BCCI finalised the names of their new members in a meeting in Mumbai on Sunday and former Indian captain emerged as consensus candidate to be BCCI’s new President.

The 47-year-old Ganguly who was elected as the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president last month, will have to demit office in 2020 as he will go into cooling-off period.

According to the sources, Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah will be the new secretary while Arun Dhumal will be the new treasurer.

October 14 is the last date to file the nominations. However, no election will be held since all candidates have emerged unopposed, sources said.
