Following the conclusion of his term as the board’s president next week, Sourav Ganguly is prepared to depart from the BCCI. The former India captain became President of the BCCI in October 2019 and will vacate the post next week when his three-year term comes to an end. He is almost certainly going to be succeeded by Roger Binny, who has submitted his application.
According to multiple sources, Binny filed his paperwork while Ganguly was present at the BCCI headquarters. He was unhappy and wished to remain BCCI president. Ganguly may have wanted to continue. He was graciously offered the position of IPL Chairman but declined it.
A BCCI source told, “Sourav was offered IPL chairmanship but he politely declined the offer. His logic was that he cannot accept becoming head of a sub-committee in BCCI after heading the same institution. He had expressed interest in continuing in the position.”
The IPL’s chairman from 2019 through 2022 was Brijesh Patel. The former cricketer for India won’t be qualified to keep that position because he will be 70 next month. He will most likely be replaced by Arun Singh Dhumal, the BCCI’s treasurer at the moment.
According to numerous reports, Ganguly won’t be traveling to the ICC since he lacks the support. The former India captain has remained mute, but his destiny should soon become evident.
Before assuming the position of BCCI president, Ganguly worked as a coach for the Delhi Capitals, and he may return to the T20 competition. He was once more spotted in the commentary box while working part-time as a commentator for ICC events.
