Ganguly’s name has been doing the rounds since then. But when asked about it, the elegant batter of yesteryear just had this to say: “ICC chairmanship is not in my hands.” The ICC Board has decided that a two-thirds majority is no longer required to be elected as the chairman. According to the latest recommendations, the contestant bagging 51 per cent votes will be elected as the winner.
In a 16-member board, the candidate needs just nine votes from the directors to get elected.
The seasoned Jhulan Goswami is retiring from international cricket after playing the third and final ODI against England, and Ganguly called the pacer “an absolute legend”.
“Jhulan is an absolute legend… Last three as BCCI president, we have maintained very good relations… she had a fantastic career. She is almost 40.
“Jhulan will leave a mark in women’s cricket she is a role model, she should get the highest honour when she finishes at Lord’s. She is an absolute champion.”
It’s been a while now, but Ganguly still can’t believe that India lost the Commonwealth Games final in Australia.
“Still wonder how we have lost the CWG final, we were cruising, we were winning… The BCCI is putting in a lot of effort for women’s cricket. We have won two matches in England.. I am happy with the progress.”
