Former captain Sourav Ganguly can bring about a lot of improvements in Indian cricket as BCCI president, national team wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha said on Friday. Saha has seen him in the Bengal dressing room and believed Ganguly as BCCI chief will be an added “plus point” to the cricketers. 

After being nominated as the sole candidate to become the BCCI president, Ganguly made it clear that his priority would be to uplift the First-Class cricketers. “He is aware of player’s demands and knows what goes on between them. It will be an added plus to the team and individual players,” Saha, who was a member of the Ganguly-led Vijay Hazare Trophy Bengal team in 2012, said. 

“I hope players will immensely benefit after Dadi (Ganguly) takes up the new role, especially under the circumstances. He has represented the country for a long time and then went on to dominate Indian cricket first as a player then captain. 

“He can bring about a lot of improvements as he knows the game inside out. If something is not happening, Dadi can make it happen,” Saha said. 

The BCCI president-elect recently said he would talk to the Indian selectors and skipper Virat Kohli, seeking clarity on the future of M S Dhoni, who is on a sabbatical since India’s World Cup semifinal loss to New Zealand. 

Asked about his opinion on Dhoni, Saha said: “It’s Dhoni bhai’s individual decision. He has played for a long time and he knows it well when and what to do.”
