One of the most successful Indian cricket team captain who lead the team to glorious victories for India, has taken charge as the 39th President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday.

The 47 yeard old Sourav Ganguly made a firm visual statement as he wore the same blazer when he had got elected as the captain of the Indian Cricket team in 2000.

Taking charge on his first day, he addressed the media saying “I will do it my way. I will do it the way with no compromise on credibility, corruption-free and same-for-all BCCI. That's the way I led India and that's the way I will take this organization forward.”

He also said “It's the first day I sat on a chair where some stalwarts have sat. It was the same when I became the captain as well. There were some great names who led the country before me. I have a role to do and I will do that to the best of my ability.”

Ganguly has already been an administrator for the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) and now being the president of the BCCI, he will serve for a term of 9 months.
