Sourav Ganguly files nomination for BCCI Prez, set to be elected unopposed
 
Mumbai: Former Team India captain Sourav Ganguly on Monday filed his nomination for the post of BCCI?president, which officially cleared the road for him to be the new chief of the world''s strongest cricket board. Ganguly was accompanied by former BCCI presidents Niranjan Shah, N Srinivasan and former IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla, as he came to file his nomination at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai. Addressing the media outside the BCCI headquaters, the former skipper said that his primary focus would be to revamp the first class cricket and improve the financial conditions of the players.

I have been very vocal on domestic cricket, especially remuneration. That is going to be my first priority,'''' he added. The ace batsman, who represented India in 113 Tests and 311 ODIs and has more than 18,000 runs and 38 centuries to his credit in international cricket, said it is an important time for the administration of the sport in the country. When asked about his appointment and the challenges ahead, Ganguly said, ''''Happy and satisfied. It''s a very important time in Indian cricket administration because of all that happened in the last three years. It''s satisfying to be in a position to make a difference, along with the team.

It is a very important time in cricket administration with what has happened in the last three years. Hopefully in the next few months we can put things back in order and bring back normalcy in Indian cricket'''', he added. The BCCI elections were scheduled to be held on October 23 but with Sourav Ganguly being the only candidate to file his nomination for the top post of Indian cricket, he is set to be elected unopposed. Earlier, Ganguly had emerged as the consensus candidate to be BCCI''s new President during a meeting between the state units of BCCI on Sunday night.

Ganguly has represented India in over 400 international matches, apart from leading the national side for five years. He would bring in vast experience as a player, captain, and then, as a coach-mentor. He was the chairman of the BCCI technical committee and has been a media personality for many years. However, former Indian captain will have to demit his post in September, 2020, as he will go into compulsory cooling off period, according to the current BCCI rules.
