Sourav Ganguly set to become second captain to be BCCI president

Sourav Ganguly, if elected, will become only the second captain in the history of Indian cricket, after Maharajkumar of Vizianagram or Vizzy, to hold the top job in the governing board.

With Sourav Ganguly poised to be the new Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president, the former India captain is set to repeat a unique double in the history of India cricket — of becoming the second captain to become full-time president of the governing board.

The Indian Express understands that in the meeting in Mumbai on Sunday, the members had unanimously nominated Ganguly to take charge of the board, with his competitor, Brijesh Patel, set to be appointed as the IPL governing council chairman. The members will meet again on Monday morning to finalise the candidates for the post of secretary and treasurer.

Ganguly, if elected, will follow in the footsteps of former Indian captain, Maharajkumar of Vizianagram or Vizzy, to become the only other Indian captain to hold the top job in BCCI. Vizzy had led India in three Test matches during the 1936 tour of England, who later became the president in 1954.
