As per a report from Times of India, today was the last day to file nomination but Ganguly doesn't have any opposition.
It is noteworthy that Ganguly is currently the president of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) and will have to go into a compulsory cooling off period before joining the post as the BCCI head.
