Former India captain Sourav Ganguly took over as the new president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at the apex body’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Mumbai. Ganguly is likely to serve only 9 months as BCCI president as the “Cooling Off” period clause in the new BCCI constitution makes it mandatory for board officials to step down after 6 years in office. Ganguly, who played 113 Tests and 311 one-day internationals and led India to 21 Test wins, has already been an administrator for his home state association, Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).
