Sourav Ganguly Chooses BCCI President Job Easier Compared To Batsman
Sourav Ganguly has lived the life as a batsman while currently, he is playing the second innings of his life as the BCCI president. Both the jobs are tough and responsible as millions of people are watching your every move. However, Sourav Ganguly feels that being a batsman is a difficult task than handling a cricket board.
Sourav Ganguly, as a captain, was the one who took out the Indian team from the match-fixing scandals, led the Men in Blue to great heights. In October 2019, he was appointed for the new job of president in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Sourav Ganguly believes that if he does a mistake as a batsman in the field, he could not go back and correct his mistake. But being a president, he can rectify his mistake, and for him its an advantage.
“It was tougher playing under pressure because it was one chance while batting, that was a lot difficult. Here (as BCCI President) if I make a mistake, I come back next and get it rectified, there if you nicked (Glenn) McGrath outside the off stump…” Sourav Ganguly told PTI.
Before holding this new position, Ganguly was the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB). Thus, he has experience in an administration post. His appointment for the BCCI’s post has brought hopes of a revolution in Indian cricket.
Soon after taking the charge, he introduced the new fashion in Indian cricket. The Indian team played the first day-night Test match with the pink-ball against Bangladesh in Eden Gardens. He has also announced the contract for the first-class cricketers as well as revealed that BCCI is in discussion with the ECB and CA to start a four-nation super series in future.
During his playing career, Ganguly established himself as one of the world’s leading batsmen and also one of the most successful captains of the Indian national cricket team. Ganguly played 113 Tests and 311 ODIs in his international career.
