Newly-elected BCCI President Sourav Ganguly today said he will lead the cricket body just the way he led the Indian cricket team. Addressing a press conference in Mumbai after being elected unopposed to the post, Mr. Ganguly said there will be no compromise on credibility, and the focus will be on providing a corruption-free administration. He said he will work for what is best for Indian cricket.
Ganguly said he will speak to skipper Virat Kohli tomorrow to assure him of whatever support is needed to make the Indian cricket team the best in the world. When asked about the speculation surrounding the future of former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the BCCI President said champions do not finish very quickly.
It may be noted Dhoni has been on a sabbatical since India’s semi-final exit from the ODI World Cup earlier this year. As the 39th President of, BCCI, Sourav Ganguly will have a nine-month run along with a group of young teammates including Jayesh George and Arun Dhumal.
