New Delhi: BCCI Secretary Jay Shah rubbished the media reports claiming that BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has resigned from his post after a tweet by Sourav saying “planning to start something new”.
Jay Shah spoke to ANI and said that “ The rumours doing rounds about Mr. Sourav Ganguly stepping down from the post of BCCI President are factually incorrect. We have some exciting times in the form of media rights coming up and my colleagues and I are completely focused on the upcoming opportunity and safeguarding the interest of Indian cricket,”.

Most importantly, it has given me the support of all of you. I want to thank every single person who has been a part of the journey, supported me, and helped me reach where I am today,”.
