Sourav Ganguly has said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is in "great hands" under the new president Roger Binny, who took over the reins from Ganguly at the national cricket board's 91st Annual General Meeting (AGM), held in Mumbai on October 18.

The 1983 World Cup-winning cricketer has became the 36th BCCI president and he takes charge as the cricket board's chief just when the Indian team is in Australia participating in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022. After the end of the tournament, all eyes will be on the 50-over World Cup, which is scheduled to be hosted in India next year. 

I wish Roger Binny all the best: Sourav Ganguly

Sourav Ganguly, who attended the BCCI AGM, had words of praise for Roger Binny after the meeting concluded. “I wish Roger (Binny) all the best. The new group will take this forward. BCCI is in great hands. Indian cricket is strong so I wish them all the luck,” said Ganguly as quoted as saying by CricketNext.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen what exactly will the outgoing BCCI president's future endeavors will be as he has not been offered any other position by the cricket board. However, Arun Singh Dhumal, who worked alongside Ganguly as the treasurer, has now been elected in the IPL Governing Council along with Avishek Dalmiya. 

Other office-bearers including the likes of Rajeev Shukla and Jay Shah have been re-elected as the vice-president and secretary respectively. Meanwhile, even though all the key pointers were discussed and implemented, there was no discussion regarding the International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman post, which has given rise to speculations that the BCCI might not nominate a candidate for the ICC Chairmanship. 

October 20 is the deadline for taking a final call regarding the same by filing ICC nominations. The next ICC Chairman will be elected at the board meeting in Melbourne next month.
