Mumbai: Former Indian cricket captain and Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) chief, Sourav Ganguly, said looking after first class cricketers will be his first priority after becoming the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president, media reports said.

Ganguly said this as he has been unanimously nominated to become the new BCCI chief. The former skipper will file his nomination on Monday.

In a dramatic turn of events, as several media reports said, Ganguly emerged as the consensus candidate to become the next BCCI chief, surpassing former Indian cricket board president N Srinivasan's candidate Brijesh Patel who is likely to become the Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman now.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah's son Jay Shah is set to assume the post of BCCI secretary.

Ganguly, who steered the Indian cricket as the skipper from the dark days of match-fixing in early 21st century, can remain the BCCI head till Sept 2020 as he will go to the mandatory cooling off period for three years.

As per the new rules, one can remain in an administrative post for six years at a go.

The former skipper, who has been elected unopposed as the CAB president for second consecutive term this year, is also the mentor of IPL franchise Delhi Capitals.

Ganguly will formally take charge as the BCCI president on Oct 23.
