Sourav Ganguly: Three Major Decisions Made by Former India Captain As BCCI President

Sourav Ganguly, one of cricket’s all-time great captains, appears to be making a regrettable exit from his position as President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). There are still many rumours about his planned departure, and some have even suggested that Dada wanted to keep running the wealthiest cricket board in the world. But the truth is that Roger Binny is almost certainly going to take over as leader. 
Even if some believe Ganguly didn’t live up to his promise as BCCI president, there are still a few significant moves that he made since taking office in 2019. 
In India, the day/night test has been introduced: 
India had yet to approve pink-ball cricket in Test matches, despite other cricketing nations across the world having done so for some time. Day/Night Tests were introduced to India by Ganguly, with the inaugural match taking place in Kolkata between Virat Kohli’s Team India and Bangladesh. It was the beginning of what test cricket’s future might hold. 
During COVID-19, there is chaos in the IPL: For two seasons in a row, the Indian Premier League was plagued by doubts as COVID-19 wreaked havoc around the globe. The BCCI held the complete 2020 and partial 2021 seasons in the UAE, as well as the 2022 season in a few other venues. Despite a few bumps along the road during the 2021 and 2022 editions, the league was a huge success on both occasions. 
increase in domestic players’ salaries 
There is no doubt that Indian cricket has the most talent. The robust domestic environment has allowed India’s senior national squad to reach these heights. The BCCI, under Ganguly, introduced pay increases for players as a way of rewarding domestic players for their efforts and motivating them to push their limitations even further. 
A few scandals occurred during Ganguly’s final few years as an active player. It would appear that his last few days in office as BCCI president won’t be particularly enjoyable either.
