Kolkata, Jul 25: Amidst speculation that he is gearing up to take on incumbent Jagmohan Dalmiya in the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) presidential elections next year, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly Friday described the former cricket board chief as a 'legend' in the game's administration.
"He is a legend in cricket administration, and he will be," Ganguly said in an interview on a Bengali television news channel Star Ananda.
"I am reading lot of speculations about why I want to get into cricket administration. I am not going there to fight anybody. I don't have any such mentality," said Ganguly, who will make his debut in cricket administration by attending the July 31 CAB annual general meeting (AGM).
To another query about his probable clash with Dalmiya in the CAB administration, he said: "Both of us have the same goal, to take forward Bengal cricket."
Gangly said he wanted to use his experience to contribute to Bengal cricket.
"I will try to give my best. Hopefully, I will be acceptable," he said.
In the run-up to the coming CAB AGM, the anti-Dalmiya opposition had tried to persuade Ganguly to file his nomination for the top post, but Ganguly shied away.
