Sourav Ganguly to Take Over As New CAB President
Former India Captain and close confidante of Late Jagmohan Dalmiya is all set to become the new President of the CAB.
Former India captain Sourav Ganguly was on Thursday appointed the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), ending the suspense on who will take over the state cricket body following the death of Jagmohan Dalmiya.
The announcement of Ganguly was made by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in presence of senior CAB officials and state government ministers at the state secretariat building.
While the Chief Minister officially made it clear that it was a decision taken by the CAB officials and she was there to support their bid to take the game of cricket in the state forward, it was apparent that it took government interference to annoint Ganguly in place of the late Jagmohan Dalmiya.
