The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) seems not to have taken it easy that the announcement of its new president, made by chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday. CAB has 121 members in total. And in last two days it has been observed most of the member units have expressed unhappiness over ‘the manner’ Sourav Ganguly has been chosen the president. But at the same time, none of the members is being able to speak out openly. The reason is simple. The announcement has been made by the Chief Minister and Sourav Ganguly is an icon.

But an effect might come on the newly chosen president in the CAB election, scheduled to be held in July next year. One of the close associates of Sourav told on condition of anonymity on Friday, “Most of the members had thought of offering Ganguly to seat on the president’s post immediately after the demise of Jagmohan Dalmiya. But in the manner chief minister announced him as the CAB president from her political headquarters, we have been extremely hurt.” Another veteran member of the association also looked sad while speaking on the issue. He said, “We had at least two months’ time to choose a new president of the association. Then why did Sourav go to Nabanna two consecutive days and had a meeting with the Chief Minister on the issue? It has been disappointing for all of us that CAB president was announced from a political platform, for the first time in the history of CAB.”
