During his tenure as the BCCI president, Ganguly will look to coordinate with old guard such as former President N Srinivasan and ex-Secretary Niranjan Shah, whose children are now part of the BCCI.

Ganguly played for the now-defunct Pune Warriors India in 2011 and was named the captain of the franchise in 2012.

Ganguly grabbed the spotlight for his outrageous celebration after India chased down an improbable 326 against England in Natwest series final in 2002. A pumped up Ganguly let his emotions get the better of him by taking off his shirt and waving it at the Lord’s balcony.

At the stroke of the midnight hour, it seemed the president had been finalised—BCCI grandees exuded an air of certainty. Then, an unexplai­ned hubbub: meetings, huddles, quiet words, frantic phonecalls. At the end of it all, consensus plumped for Sourav Gan­guly. We can’t expl­ain the hype over a 10-month tenure, except that stakes in Indian cricket run deep.
