Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday indicated his willingness to begin a new innings as a cricket administrator, saying he wants to stay in touch with the game post-retirement.
Ganguly, who turned 37 on Wednesday, said he may have quit international cricket but wants to stay in touch with the game as an administrator.
“I have stopped playing cricket six months ago. I would be connected to cricket. Bengal has a lot of talent and I want to take care of it,” the country’s most successful captain told reporters in Mumbai.
Already the opposition camp in Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) is planning to pit the former captain against CAB President Jagmohan Dalmiya and it could be the stepping stone before Ganguly goes on to head the BCCI, which, according to the rotation policy it follows, is scheduled to have its 2014 President from the East Zone.
To attain the BCCI top post, Ganguly, however, would require to attend at least two annual general body meetings of the board.
