Srinagar: The former India cricket team skipper and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has commented on his imminent departure from the cricket governing body of India after not getting backing to continue as its head.
The BCCI elections are set for October 18. However, it will be mere formality as everything has been cleared in an unofficial meeting held recently in which Ganguly didnt got backing of board members for the President post continuance. Former India cricketer Roger Binny is set to replace him while as Jay Shah will continue as Secretary and Arun Dhumal will be made IPL Chairmain.
Speaking at a Bandhan Bank event, Ganguly said 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. You can’t be a player forever, you can’t be an administrator forever. It’s been great doing both,” Ganguly said while confirming his departure.
“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.
