Sourav Ganguly, the outgoing president of the BCCI, is still involved in management. Ganguly will run for office in the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB). Although Abhishek Dalmiya is the current president, his first three-year term will end in 2023. Ganguly will run for CAB President the next year.

However, since he held the position of President from 2015 to 2019, Ganguly is only eligible to serve for three years at the CAB. Since Ganguly became BCCI President in 2020, Abhishek Dalmiya, the son of former BCCI chairman Jagmohan Dalmiya, has held the position. However, Abhishek Dalmiya will have to resign from his position and enter a cooling-off period since he previously held the position of joint secretary.

Even though he wanted to serve as BCCI President for a further three years, the former India captain was compelled to resign. Despite several explanations from Treasurer Arun Dhumal, Ganguly’s maiden game for the BCCI was cut short after N Srinivasan criticized his lack of effort. It soon became obvious that Ganguly would have to leave the BCCI since the organization’s top brass opposed supporting him for the ICC Chairman elections.

The tension between the two began in 2019.
Brijesh Patel was nearly given the chair by Srinivasan, but the situation was reversed at the last second when Ganguly was named president.

Despite the fact that he has never spoken it in public, insiders claim that Srinivasan never forgot this humiliation and wished to make it right.

It was a question of status for Srinivasan. He had to demonstrate that his word was still valid.

No president has ever served two terms in a row, which is the official excuse given to Sourav.

There was no justification for the East’s candidate to be granted this benefit.

It was discovered that Srinivasan had even accused Sourav of not living up to expectations.

Arun Dhumal later said that Ganguly was not the subject of any animosity. And it was only on the basis of prior events that his candidacy was rejected. No BCCI president has served two consecutive terms.

According to Dhumal, all of the choices taken prior to the nominations being submitted included Ganguly.

“Nobody ever criticized him in any way. Despite the difficulties caused by COVID-19, all of the Board members were very pleased and delighted with the whole staff and the way the BCCI was handled over the last three years.

“Dada has had a tremendously illustrious career as the captain of India, one of the greatest commanders ever. He said, “As an administrator, he brought the whole staff along, and we collaborated as one team.

Regarding the board changes, Jay Shah will continue to serve as the BCCI Secretary. All office holders from various organizations from around the nation submitted nominations for various seats on the board during a BCCI meeting held on Tuesday at the Trident Hotel in Mumbai. The conversations took place during a BCCI internal meeting before to the elections, which are set for October 18.

Achievements of Sourav Ganguly in the BCCI:

IPL 2022 was successfully brought about in India under Covid under Ganguly’s leadership, despite the fact that Jay Shah is given credit for it.
