Sourav Ganguly appointed chairman of Cricket Association of Bengal's (CAB) new Cricket Development Committee

Sourav Ganguly has been finally officially appointed in an administrative post in West Bengal cricket. After his retire from international level, he had expressed his desire to enter into administration. In a turn of events, news came out today that he has been appointed as chairman of CAB’s new cricket development committee. 

According to Cricinfo, “Ganguly, who had expressed an ambition to join cricket administration in his home state of West Bengal, will head a committee of three other former first-class cricketers.

"We have decided to form the committee which will also have Arun Lal, Ashok Malhotra and Pranab Roy as the other members," Jagmohan Dalmiya, president of the CAB, told reporters in Kolkata.

While describing the responsibilities of the committee, Dalmiya said: "The committee will receive a report from the selectors (senior and junior) at the end of every cricket season, assess the accountability of the selectors and will make necessary recommendations as well."

Dalmiya said the committee will also handle issues related to umpiring standards, the technical aspects of all tournaments organized by the Bengal board and will have advisory powers concerning cricket-related matters at various levels to improve the standard of cricket in the state.”

So it’s again time to see what unique strokes he has to offer off the field. He is sure to be different from the thousand others already in the system, to say the least.
