Much to the delight to Sourav Ganguly fans, the former cricketer was formally chosen as the head of BCCI earlier today. 

It was just a formality, though, as Ganguly had no opposition for the post. 

However, Ganguly is expected to stay in office only for 9 months for now because the new BCCI constitution makes it mandatory for the officials to undergo a cooling off period after 6 years and Ganguly has already been serving as the CAB president for the same period.

Ganguly is the first cricketer to become the president of the BCCI after the Maharaja of Vizianagaram.

One of our greatest captains, Sourav Ganguly will definitely look to head the BCCI with same zeal and enthusiasm.
