Sourav Ganguly was working regularly and he did attend the BCCI’s AGM meet as well. Dada has always been a favourite of former players like Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, etc. Harbhajan Singh, who announced his retirement a few days ago also mentioned the role of Ganguly in this career.
“If Sourav Ganguly hadn’t fought for me and got me in the team, today I might not be here,” Bhajji said.
“Sourav is the leader who made me what I am. MS Dhoni certainly was a very good captain and he carried the legacy of Sourav.”
Ganguly became BCCI president in 2019, whereas he was the one who convinced India to play a pink-ball Test. He was set to go out on a cooling period, but the case is still in still in court. Sourav Ganguly is said to be in a stable condition right now and hopes he recovers soon.
