Kolkata: The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) joint secretary Subir Ganguly and treasurer Biswarup Dey have decided to wait till January 19 before tendering their resignations, which is an eventuality. CAB president Sourav Ganguly had called an informal meeting where working committee date was scheduled on January 9. “The date of SGM to decide on adaptation of Lodha panel reforms will be decided on Monday. We were not asked to tender our resignation today. The picture will be clear on January 19 and we will take a call then,” treasurer Dey told PTI on Wednesday. Dey is in his 10th year as CAB office bearer having served two terms as treasurer and two terms as joint secretary.

The current joint secretary Subir Ganguly however is in his eighth year as office bearer but has had four straight years in office, which forces him to go for a cooling off period. “Since Lodha reforms suggests all states to have uniform Constitution, I would wait till January 19th. The verdict has come out we all need to resign but we need some clarity. Since I have one year in state body administration left, I may come back to complete it,” said Subir Ganguly.

However, Sourav Ganguly is backed by many to succeed many as the next BCCI President. However, he feels that he is not ready to take up that post yet. It s better not to take my name. There is no reason to take my name. It s too early, Ganguly told reporters a day after the Supreme Court, in a historic verdict, sacked board President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke for not implementing the July 18 recommendations of the Justice RM Lodha Committee.
