You can’t be an administrator forever: Outgoing BCCI president Sourav Ganguly

Written by Toshi Pawar

The BCCI is set to have its new president after the end of Sourav Ganguly’s stint next week. The former India captain had taken over as BCCI’s chief in October 2019 and will be completing his stint soon.

Ganguly will be replaced by Roger Binny, who is also a veteran administrator. Speaking at an event on Thursday (October 13), Ganguly finally broke the silence about his exit as the BCCI president and said that “he can’t be an administrator forever”.

“You can’t play cricket forever, you can’t be an administrator forever. Every administration job has a tenure and will come to an end. I will go onto do something else now. 15 years of my cricketing career were the best,” he said.

Ganguly wanted to continue as BCCI president and didn’t give up till Tuesday (October 11), the day when Binny filed his nomination. The report adds that Ganguly was informed about not living up to the expectations during the informal meetings and that he didn’t have the backing.
