New Delhi: Just like three years ago, on the last occasion, Sourav Ganguly, hitting the entry, took the office of the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India in his name. Now after three years, almost in the same way, at the last moment, Ganguly also lost the opportunity to stay in this post for the next three years. Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly’s three-year term as the chairman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India is set to end next week and the former India captain will be replaced by Roger Binny. Ganguly took over as the head of the BCCI in October 2019 and was looking to remain on till 2025 after the Supreme Court of India lifted the clause of the three-year cooling-off period.

On 24 October 2019, Ganguly became the President of BCCI for the first time. Then with him, Jay Shah had achieved important posts like Secretary and Arun Dhumal as Treasurer. Under the leadership of Ganguly and Shah, the BCCI fought the case in the Supreme Court and winning this case a few weeks ago cleared the way for the board to remain in power for 6 consecutive years (3+3), but then Ganguly did not even think. It will happen that in a few days he will have to face such a deadly yorker on the BCCI pitch.

Ganguly served as the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal before he became BCCI’s chief. He was also associated with Delhi Capitals in the capacity of advisor.

Binny, who is set to replace Ganguly as BCCI’s president, was a member of the 1983 World Cup-winning squad. A key member of Kapil Dev-headed pace attack, Binny played his part in the title win by scalping 18 wickets in 8 matches to finish as the tournament’s highest wicket-taker.

According to the reports, the way he was sidelined in the board in the recent few days and the way he was not given a chance to become the president again, it disappointed Ganguly badly. According to the report, on Tuesday, October 11, when the nomination process for the posts was going on at the BCCI Headquarters in Mumbai, Ganguly sat in his office for the whole day and only after leaving everyone in the evening left from there directly in his car.

According to the information, Ganguly was offered the responsibility of IPL chairman, but Ganguly refused it. Not only this, it was even said in the recent meetings of the board that Ganguly’s performance as president was not up to the expectations, due to which no one is ready to give him a chance again.
