I’ll move on to do something else: Sourav Ganguly speaks about his exit from BCCI

The former Indian skipper recalls his experience as the national team captain.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly will soon complete his tenure at the post. While several reports claim Ganguly‘s willingness to continue but he did not have the support of other members. Following this, the former Indian cricket and ’83 World Cup winner Roger Binny is all set to take over the role of the board chief.

While Ganguly said that he’ll move on to do something else, he also goes down memory lane and recalls his career as a cricketer. The former Indian captain said that the best time of his life was when he represented the nation in the International arena.

I will go on to do bigger things: Sourav Ganguly

While attending an event held by Bandhan Bank, the Prince of Kolkata states that he has been an administrator for a long time and he will now be looking to ‘move on to do something else‘.

“I have been an administrator and I will move on to something else. Whatever you do in life the best days are when you played for India. I have been president of BCCI and I will go on to do bigger things. You can’t be a player forever, you can’t be an administrator forever. It’s been great doing both”.

Ganguly goes on to talk about his time as the Indian skipper

Ganguly goes on to talk about his time as the Indian skipper,

“It was six captains leading the team. I stood up for Rahul when he was almost dropped from the one day side. I took their suggestions in picking the team. These things don’t go unnoticed in a team environment. It’s not just the runs I scored. People remember other things. It’s what you do as a leader for them.”

Ganguly also opened up on his experience leading the Indian team as captain.

“I never believed in history but the feeling in the past was east lacked talent to play at that level. You don’t become an Ambani or Narendra Modi in one day. You have to work for months and years to get there,”

added the outgoing chief.

While Ganguly is all set to vacant the post and Roger Binny is all set to become the 36th BCCI President. A few other changes are also expected to take place in the board. However, Jay Shah will continue with his role as the secretary.
