State Bureau, Kolkata. Former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly is going to contest for the post of President of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) after being discharged from BCCI. The CAB election is scheduled to be held on 31st of this month, for which the last date for filing nominations is October 22.

Significantly, after the death of Jagmohan Dalmiya in 2015, Sourav Ganguly took over as the CAB President, although he resigned from this post after being elected as the BCCI President in 2019. Dalmiya’s son Abhishek Dalmiya was made the president in his place. Sourav had also held the post of secretary in the CAB before becoming the president. Presently his elder brother Snehasish Ganguly is on the post of Secretary.

Let us tell you that Sourav Ganguly served as the President of BCCI for three years, but this time he was not made a contender for the post of President. In his place, former Indian cricketer Roger Binny had nominated himself for the post. Now the name of the new BCCI President will be announced on 18th October and Roger Binny is all set to become the next President. Although Sourav Ganguly was offered to be made the IPL chairman, but he had turned down the offer and he will now contest for the post of CAB president.

At the same time, after the removal of former Team India captain Sourav Ganguly from the post of BCCI President, now his wife Dona Ganguly has also opened her mouth. He said that the older a man is, the more disputes arise about him. There is no dispute with the common people. Maybe people have high expectations from him. Donna further said- ‘I believe that bad times do not last forever. The one who is having bad times now, tomorrow his good time will also come. The sun rises, then it is night. Life goes on like this too. If there is darkness, then with the sunrise, the old days will also return again.
