Sourav Ganguly, the country's legendary cricketer, is going to be dramatically the new president of the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI). All is well, he will take over the most influential board in the world only after the official announcement. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is also pleased that Sourav is getting the responsibility.
BCB is expecting additional benefits to Sourav mainly because of the Bengali. This is what the BCB Director and Board of Media Committee head Jalal Yunus said on Monday.
Bangladesh wants to maintain good relations with all the cricket boards of the world. However, when a Bengali is going to be the most powerful board chief in the subcontinent as well as the entire cricket world, the expectation of the BCB will naturally be high.
About this, Jalal Yunus said, "We have a good relationship with the BCCI. Relationship is good with those who are present. But Sourav Ganguly is a Bengali, a former cricketer, so we will definitely get an extra benefit. We might be more comfortable discussing an issue with him. Moreover, he has a personal relationship with many of us. He has played many times in Bangladesh. We have a soul connection here. They will hopefully be useful. '' He added, 'If we have not had games before, maybe in the bilateral series – if there is an exchange program at the junior level, we can openly discuss it.
An informal meeting of the BCCI was held in Mumbai on Sunday. At the meeting, officials of the Indian Cricket Board decided to nominate Saurav as the next president. Indian media reported today to India Today. Sourav has become easier to become president because of the compromise that candidates eager to step down as president. Brijesh Patel was accompanied by Sourav who ran for BCCI president. He could be heard moving away from the negotiations between the two parties.
According to the report, Joy Shah, son of Home Minister Amit Shah, has been appointed as the BCCI's new secretary. Arun Dhamal, younger brother of former BCCI president Anurag Thakur, is the new treasurer.
