The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all set to get a new president as per the reports. It has been said that the current BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly wouldn’t continue his term in the BCCI. Supreme Court had recently allowed the Indian cricket board to amend its constitution which created rumours that both Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah will continue for one more term.

The cricket fraternity has also added that Sourav Ganguly can actually make way for Jay Shah to become the new BCCI boss but those rumours have now come to a halt also. The former captain might go for the role of ICC chairman for which there’s a need for support from cricket boards across the globe. Considering the 2023 ODI World Cup slated to take place in India, the BCCI will be keen to keep Ganguly as the chairman of the world governing body as well.
