Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly will be appointed as new BCCI President while Union Minister Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah will be the new secretary and Arun Dhumal will be the new treasurer for BCCI (The Board of Control for Cricket in India). Dhumal is the younger brother of MoS Finance and former BCCI president Anurag Thakur.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is the national governing body for cricket in India. The board was formed in December 1928 as a society, registered under the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act.

“Yes, Brijesh was running for the President’s post with N Srinivasan actively lobbying for him. However, there was stiff resistance against him. We are happy Sourav is the new President,” a senior official from North East affiliated unit, told PTI.
