Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

Sourav Ganguly, former captain of Team India, is soon going to take charge as the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). As soon as he was elected BCCI President for 10 months, Ganguly gave an indication of the direction in which he would like to guide the BCCI.

Ganguly began with a broad instruction to the Indian team to pay more attention to big tournaments.

Speaking to reporters at the Dum Dum airport in Kolkata, Ganguly said, “It is a big responsibility. Hopefully, they (the Indian cricket team) will be able to do a good job. Their priority will be first-class cricket. First-class cricket is very important because Indian cricket has a base. We are just focusing on the top level.”

On Team India’s performance, Dada said that the Indian team was doing well.

The ‘Prince of Kolkata‘ said, “Team India has had a good performance in big tournaments, but the team has failed to perform that way in the semi-finals and finals. A special plan will have to be prepared for this.”

Later, sitting in the Cricket Association of Bengal office, its head and in-waiting BCCI president said that little things assume great proportions in life, and hence “we have to be cautious”.

Ganguly further said that when the Champions Trophy was organised for the first time, he had played in it in 1998. “I led the Indian team twice in the Champions Trophy and on both the occasions, the team reached the finals in which once we were the joint winners. But T20 is a format which has attracted more people.”

Earlier, Ganguly praised Virat Kohli and said that the current Indian captain was the pride of India. “He will work without any pressure and will think like a cricketer,” Ganguly said about Kohli, adding that in the T20 World Cup next year, the captain must play in his trademark “open” style.
