Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) President Sourav Ganguly has been given a bigger role within BCCI’s hieararchy, replacing Anil Kumble as the technical committee Chairman. The change was announced, during BCCI’s ongoing AGM in Mumbai, which has already sprung several surprises. According to a senior BCCI official, Kumble’s poor performance during the South Africa T-20 and ODI series, is the reason for his oust. The official said that, “The Board, especially Shashank Manohar was disappointed with Kumble’s performance. Hence, after coming to a consensus, it was decided that someone with administrative capabilities as well as playing one will be instated. It was an obvious choice for most people.”
