Sourav Ganguly has made it his mission to run for president of the Bengal Cricket Association.
Former Indian captain and departing BCCI president aspire to lead the Bengal Cricket Association.
Sourav Ganguly, the outgoing BCCI president, is to run for president of the Cricket Association of Bengal in the next elections, a position he held for four years from 2015 to 2019.

“Yes, I will be contesting the CAB polls,” Ganguly told PTI. “I plan to file my nomination on October 22. I have been in CAB for five years and as per Lodha rules, I can continue for another four years.
“I will finalize my panel on October 20.”
The PTI report said, “There was a strong buzz that Ganguly’s elder brother Snehasish would contest in place of Avishek Dalmiya for the top post, but the former India player’s nomination changes a lot of equations.”
Ganguly was made president of the BCCI in October 2019 and will be succeeded by former India allrounder Roger Binny on October 18, when the BCCI holds its annual general meeting in Mumbai.
