Sourav Ganguly, the former Indian captain, has expressed an ambition to join cricket administration in his home state of West Bengal though he did not specify when he would do so. Ganguly, who turned 37 today, was confident that the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) would appreciate his concern for the state's cricket and the difference he could make.
"At some point, I will find a way to get into the CAB where people have known me since I was a kid," Ganguly told Times of India. "I am convinced that I can play a positive role. Having played the game at the highest level and being part of the system, I know what it takes to make a difference. I intend to take it step by step."
Ganguly retired from international cricket after the home series against Australia in October last year. He played a few domestic matches for Bengal after that, followed by the IPL this year. He also joined the television commentary team for the World Twenty20 in England last month.
