The former Indian captain also said that the new office bearers of BCCI will take the Board of Control for Cricket in India forward.
“I wish Roger (Binny) all the best. The new group will take it forward. The BCCI is in good hands. Indian cricket is strong, so I wish them all the best,” Ganguly said.
Ganguly was earlier not considered for a second term as the BCCI president and was stripped of the post after a BCCI meeting at the Trident on 11 October.
The former cricketer had earlier expressed his thoughts on his tenure as the BCCI president.
“I was the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal for five years. I have been president of BCCI for years. After all these terms you have to leave and go. As an administrator you have to contribute a lot and make things better for the team. If I am a player, who has been there for a long time, understood that. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as an administrator. You can’t play forever and you can’t stay in administration forever,” Ganguly had earlier said at an event.
Ganguly is expected to contest for Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president. The former Indian captain was offered the post of IPL chairman which he denied.
