Sourav Ganguly has accepted the post of chairman of Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) Technical Committee. At yesterday's BCCI AGM, President N Srinivasan said that Ganguly would, subject to his consent, replace outgoing chairman Sunil Gavaskar.
"I am happy to know this (that BCCI has considered me for this position). It's a great honour indeed. Of course, I will take up this position," Ganguly told MiD DAY before boarding the flight home from London where he was a television commentator for India's tour of England.
