Kolkata: Former captain of Indian cricket team Sourav Ganguly has said, “No one can continue as the administrator through his life. All have to face rejections some time or the other. When you look at quick success it never happens. Remember, one does not become Narendra Modi or Sachin Tendulkar or an Ambani overnight.”

Ganguly made the statement on his forthcoming exit from the post of BCCI president. He broke his silence on the issue after attending a function organised by Bandhan in Kolkata on Thursday. He said that he had enjoyed his term as BCCI president thoroughly and counted his accomplishments. Ganguly told reporters that there had been many developments in Indian cricket in the past three years during his tenure as BCCI president.

He, however, did not say anything about the reasons for abdicating his post

Counting his accomplishments, Ganguly said, “We organised cricket during an extremely difficult period of Covid-19 pandemic. The Indian women’s cricket team won the silver medal in the Commonwealth Games. The Indian men’s cricket team had several successes overseas. Still as I said one cannot continue as the administrator through one’s life.”

He said that he had led the Indian cricket team at a time when there were more competent players like Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid who could lead the team.
