Sourav Ganguly, a former Indian captain, was denied the opportunity to serve as BCCI president for a second term. The veteran was reportedly reprimanded for his subpar leadership of the organisation, according to another story.
Arun Dhumal, the outgoing BCCI treasurer and incoming IPL chairman, has refuted these rumours and assertions.
Sourav will be replaced by Roger Binny, Jay Shah will continue to serve as secretary, and Rajeev Shukla will be re-elected to another term as vice president.
No one had criticised Ganguly, Dhumal claimed in an interview with PTI.
“No BCCI president has got another term in independent India. All reports of Sourav Ganguly’s bashing by some of the members are baseless,” he said.
“Nobody spoke against him. We all congratulated him as he did a fantastic job. As a president, he led from the front,” he added.
Dhumal said he wouldn’t have become the next IPL chairman had Sourav accepted the offer.
