Former India captain Sourav Ganguly was on Monday, offered the chairmanship of the technical committee of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

BCCI's newly appointed president N.Srinivasan, after Annual General Meeting (AGM), said that Gavaskar, also a former captain, has written to the BCCI to be relieved from the post.

"Gavaskar has written to us that he has been on the technical committee for seven years, and it's time that we search for a fresh face. It is our intention to appoint Sourav Ganguly as the chairman of the technical committee. We haven't yet been able to contact him, but hopefully he will give his consent," Srinivasan said.

On the appointment of Mohinder Amarnath from the North Zone, Srinivasan said: "I don't think anybody would dispute his qualification to be in the selection committee."
