BCCI's President-elect Sourav Ganguly has confirmed that he will leave IPL franchise Delhi Capitals once he takes over as the President of The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The former Indian skipper also confirmed that he will stop doing commentary and writing columns, but will host his Bengali tv show, Dadagri. 'I will continue doing only (Bengali TV show) Dadagiri and endorsements, rest all stopped. Commentary, article writing, and IPL, I'll stop doing all this now,' he said. As per the Lodha recommendations, Ganguly cannot hold more than one position in BCCI.
Since the Bengali show is not related to BCCI, he is allowed to host that. Dravid chose BCCI while Bangar also left his job at IPL. India bowling coach Bharat Arun was also associated with IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore but he left his position there to be part of India set-up. The previous CAC, comprising Kapil Dev, Shantha Rangaswamy and Anshuman Gaekwad also quit their positions once they received the conflict of interest notice from the board. Ganguly, whose maiden term as BCCI President will come to an end on September 2020, will be able to take over all the positions after that. He will also not be associated with the Cricket Association of Bengal after September as he will have to go on a cooling-off period for being associated with a board for six years on the trot. Ganguly takes over as BCCI's President on October 23.
