Kolkata: The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) outgoing president Sourav Ganguly is all set to back as the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), the former BCCI supremo said here on Saturday.
Ganguly had been the CAB president for four years from 2015 to 2019 before coming to the apex body.
“Yes, I will be contesting the CAB polls. I plan to file my nomination on October 22. I have been in CAB for five years and as per Lodha rules, I can continue for another four years,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
Ganguly’s elder brother Snehasish was tipped to be the CAB president in place of Avishek Dalmiya, who has completed his term, but the former India player’s nomination is bound to change a lot of equations.
“I will finalise my panel on October 20. Let’s see,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by the agency.
