Sourav Ganguly takes over as CAB boss today

Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly all set to take over as president of the Cricket Association of Bengal – a week after a rained out T20 International at the Eden Gardens has seemingly taken some shine off the big change. 

While Ganguly replaces the departed Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Jagmohan Dalmiya, the Special General Meeting on the morrow would also see the formal entry of the late cricket czar’s son Avishek into cricket administration, completing the change of guard. Dalmiya junior would be the association’s new joint secretary, a post held by Ganguly since July last year. Subir Ganguly is likely to continue as the other joint secretary and Biswarup Dey as the treasurer.

While the talismanic ex-player would be the first Test cricketer to head the cash-rich CAB, Dalmiya’s stint is also likely to be watched with keen interest - with sporting circles likely to draw constant <g data-gr-id="11">parallelis</g> with his famous father.
