Kolkata:

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly's nomination for the post of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) Joint Secretary was today filed by his club Barisha Sporting ahead of the annual general meeting on July 27.

Welcoming the move, CAB supremo Jagmohan Dalmiya, who is set to be re-elected president uncontested, said: "Such type of people are always welcome at this level."

"We have sent his nomination papers. He represents Barisha Sporting as the General Secretary. I'm not going to comment anything beyond this before the AGM," Barisha Sporting president Arup Chatterjee told PTI.

He further said there's a "possibility" of Ganguly, who's currently doing commentary in the ongoing Test series in England, attending the AGM despite the third Test beginning on the same day.

While Ganguly will succeed Sujan Mukherjee whose four-year term will expire this month, there will be three new vice-presidents in Samar Paul, Sudip Biswas, Amiya Kumar Auddy in place of the outgoing trio of Alok Nandy, Sambhunath Poddar and Subhas Kundu.

In another change to the CAB panel, Sibaji Dutta will be inducted into the board of trustees.

All this will be finalised after 4pm on Saturday, the deadline for filing the nomination papers.
