Sourav Ganguly: Will Sourav Submit Nomination Today? Many Questions Are Flying In The Field: Those who are in the middle of Maidan politics, but they are talking about something else. Sourav is rightly testing the waters, but he may submit a CAB nomination at the last minute. If Sourav, is removed from the board, is not in the state cricket body, the chances of Sourav staying at the center of national cricket politics may decrease.
Kolkata: Will Sourav Ganguly submit his nomination for the post of CAB President today? Speculation about this in Maidan is high. Sourav himself said after being removed as the president of the Board of Cricket in India (BCCI), he is submitting his nomination for the post of CAB president. Today is the last day to submit nominations. But even though he went to CAB on Saturday, he did not make the nomination in the end. After that comes uncertainties like ‘if’, ‘but’, ‘maybe’, ‘perhaps’. So will Sourav not submit a nomination for the post of President of the State Cricket Association? Those who understand Maidani politics, but are not ruling out this possibility.
Maidan’s ardent leaders are making three arguments. Which is what Saurabh is thinking. That is why the former captain of the Indian team has postponed the decision to withdraw his nomination for the last time. What is that logic?
One, if Sourav submits his nomination to the state cricket body, then he will stay in the administrative post of CAB for a total of nine years in addition to the previous six years and three years this time. As a result, you will not be able to come to the administration of CAB without taking a cooling off in the coming days. It is not thought to be a brilliant decision for cricket administrator Sourav. Sourav does not want to end this ‘lifeline’ now to return to the board, or to match any other figure.
Two, after his removal from the board, many anti-Sourav started raising their voices in the cricket governing body of Bengal itself. It is being said that Sourav stepped out to send the opposition on the back foot. That is why he thought of contesting the CAB elections. As soon as Sourav came forward, that picture changed a lot. Most importantly, he has given a representative of the opposition group’s choice as a co-chairman on his panel. When the situation is completely under control when the opposition will not give a panel, then why stand for the election? In that case, Sourav wants to move forward by making his grandfather Snehashis Gangopadhyay president instead of him. Prabir Chakraborty will be the secretary. Naresh Ojha Treasurer.
Three, there was a buzz in Maidan as to why Sourav wanted to return to CAB after his removal from the board. The political logic that remained behind it is also accepted by the informed circles of Maidan. Their argument is that no matter how Trinamool issues Sourav, he himself will not step towards Trinamool at all. On the other hand, elections at the center in 2024. It is being said that the BJP may stay in government for one more term. But then the situation will not be as it is now. Next year, i.e. in 2025, figures can be arranged to realize the dream of occupying Bengal. Sourav will not be needed then, who can say? Politically, Saurabh wants to remain ‘neutral’ as always.
Those who are in the middle of Maidan politics, but are talking about something else. Sourav is rightly testing the waters, but he may submit a CAB nomination at the last minute. If Sourav, is removed from the board, and is not in the state cricket body, the chances of Sourav staying at the center of national cricket politics may decrease.
We have to wait for a few more hours to see what will happen in which number, and where the water will stand. To know whether Maharaj has submitted the nomination for the post of CAB president, but the state and central governments are waiting!
