The anti-Sourav Ganguly voices have started brewing in the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB). Ganguly is the President of the state association at present.
The former Joint Secretary of CAB, Subir Ganguly, has shot a letter to Sourav Ganguly citing that the former Indian cricketer has to vacate his position as per the cooling off rule in the recommendations.
Subir had been removed from his post after he completed his nine years in the CAB. He was not invited to CAB’s working committee, which irked the administrator and he raised voice against the President of the state board.
Sourav was appointed as the President of CAB in September in 2015. Along with him, Avishek Dalmiya, the son of former BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya, was appointed as the Joint Secretary.

Since then, many times there have been voices to elevate Sourav to the post of BCCI President as well, but he wants Anurag Thakur to be back on the board.
A few months back, Ganguly was one of the members of the seven-member committee to oversee the critical points of Lodha recommendations. Later, Niranjan Shah was also added to the committee.
As of now, Sourav has refused to comment on the progress of what has happened in CAB,
“I will not comment about what Subir Ganguly has said. All I know is that he has completed nine years as office bearer including four as treasurer and five as joint secretary. And the decision regarding him has been taken by Working Committee and not me,” he told PTI.
There are bleak chances of Ganguly being removed as the President of Cricket Association of CAB, and he might continue to hold the post.
