Sourav Ganguly set to be new BCCI President

In a dramatic turn of events, former captain Sourav Ganguly emerged as consensus candidate to be BCCI’s new President after Brijesh Patel appeared to have grabbed the coveted post. Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah will be the new secretary while Arun Dhumal will be the new treasurer.

Monday is the last day to file nomination but no election will be held since all candidates have emerged unopposed after weeks of lobbying and hectic parleys.

The 47-year-old Ganguly, who is currently the president of Cricket Association of Bengal, (CAB) will have to demit his post in September, 2020 as he will go into compulsory cooling off period.
