Sourav Ganguly, who will take over as president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India on October 23, tweeted a picture with his brand-new squad. “The new squad at. @bcci .. conceivably we can work well .. Anurag Thakur thank you for seeing this through,” he composed on Twitter.
Sourav Ganguly is seen attaining with Jay Shah, Arun Dhumal, and Jayesh George, who are all set to be members of his squad at the board. Former BCCI chief, Anurag Thakur, is also in the image.
Jay Shah, son of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, is set to act as new Secretary of the Indian cricket board while Arun Dhumal, who is Thakur’s sibling, is going to act as board’s new Treasurer. Jayesh George will be the new Joint Secretary.
Anurag Thakur, who is presently the Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs, reportedly played a big role in Ganguly getting the top job at the BCCI.
After finishing the nomination in Mumbai, Sourav Ganguly approached the media and stated he wants to bring normalcy back in the Indian cricket, continuing that he never revealed any ambition to become the BCCI President.
“Probably in the next few months, we can put everything in position and bring back normalcy in the board,” Sourav Ganguly told reporters on Monday.
“I had never shown my ambitions for this post. I nevermore chatted with anyone. Until 10:30 in the night yesterday, I was not informed of this. Then I was told that I have to be the President of the BCCI,” the former India captain added.
The former Indian captain stated that he has a “lot of work to do” as it is a big responsibility to lead the board of a highly-impressive Indian team.”Indian cricket board has to be the best in the world. We have to get the board in order.”
