Mumbai: After getting nominated as the president of the Indian cricket board, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly shared a picture on social media of the new team of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Tweeting the picture, Ganguly said, "The new team at. @bcci.. hopefully we can work well .. anurag thakur thank you for seeing this through ⁦@ianuragthakur"

Ganguly, who has been unanimously nominated as the presidential candidate of the BCCI, will take charge of his post on Oct 23.

After filing his nomination on Monday, Ganguly, who is presently the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president, said his priority will be bringing back normalcy in the BCCI and looking after first class cricketers.

"We as a BCCI team will have to bring back normalcy in the cricket board and put the house in order. In the last three years, there was almost a state of emergency in the BCCI," he told reporters.

"My first priority will be first class cricketers," he added.

In a dramatic turn of events on Sunday night, 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.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah's son Jay Shah has assumed 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.
