Sourav Ganguly elected as CAB president

Kolkata, Oct 15 (IBNS): Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Thursday was elected as the President of the Cricket Association of Bengal.

Ganguly said he will try to create a system that will produce good players.

Avishek Dalmiya has been inducted as the  joint-secretary of the board.

Ganguly promised to do his best with the performance in his new role.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee last month said Ganguly has the ability to succeed late Jagmohan Dalmiya as the president of the CAB.

Banerjee had said the name has been suggested by her in consultation with other administrators of CAB.

"After the demise of Jagmohan Dalimya, there has been a crisis. I feel Saurav, who was an able captain of the Indian team, is the right man to take the post of CAB president," she had said.

Ganguly had earlier served as the joint-secretary of CAB.
