Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly is set to become the next president of the BCCI according to multiple media reports in the country.

The former India batsman and captain is likely to be elected unopposed to the coveted post and is expected to file his nomination for the same on October 14.

Ganguly is currently serving as the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) while he also performs the role of a team mentor for IPL franchise Delhi Capitals.

While Ganguly is set to take over as president, Jay Shah is reportedly the favourite to become the new BCCI secretary. Jay is the son of India’s Home Minister Amit Shah and is also set to be elected unopposed.

Ganguly’s imminent appointment is a dramatic turn of events from recent reports which termed Brijesh Patel as the favourite for the BCCI top post.

Both ESPNcricinfo and NDTV have confirmed that Ganguly’s appointment as the next BCCI is imminent in recent reports.

Ganguly has been one of the most respected and successful captains of India with the southpaw going on to make 113 Test and 311 ODI appearances over the course of a distinguished 15-year international career.
