Kolkata: Former India skipper and the president of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), Sourav Ganguly, believes he isn’t qualified enough to be the BCCI president.

Shashank Manohar put in his papers recently leaving the post vacant. On Thursday, he was elected unopposed as the ICC chairman. The BCCI is currently looking for his replacement.

 

According to reports, he said he doesn’t meet the qualification criteria for he has been the CAB president for barely six months. He took over after the demise of Jagmohan Dalmiya.

In order to be in the race, he needed to attend at least three Annual General Meetings.

However, the one-time gutsy skipper believes there are lot of experienced people who can take up the top job; he didn’t take names.

Ganguly, who recently raised doubts over MS Dhoni’s future as India skipper, had a different take on Captain Cool on Friday.

He called him an unbelievable captain and said that his IPL team – Rising Pune Supergiants – is raw and new with many champion players being injured. Ganguly pointed that it is difficult for a team to perform without match winners.
