Ganguly dodges questions on Manohar’s presidency
Former India captain and incumbent Cricket Association of India (CAB) president Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday remained non-committal on his association’s support for Shashank Manohar as the BCCI president, keeping cards close to his chest.
It is East Zone’s turn to propose the BCCI president’s name and it is widely believed that the former India captain who would now control three votes -- Bengal, Tripura and National Cricket Club (NCC) would be the proposer.
When asked whether he will support Manohar’s name in the BCCI meeting on October 4, Ganguly said: “We cannot talk right now, we will see what happens ahead.”
The BCCI has called a Special General Meeting (SGM) on October 4 to elect its new President with Nagpur lawyer Manohar emerging as a “consensus” candidate.
Apprising media of the development, the BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur in Delhi said that the meeting will be held in Mumbai and scrutiny of the nominations will be done on October 3.
