Saurav Ganguly said that he didn’t enjoy the full form of BCCI

Newly appointed BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has said he doesn't enjoy the word 'Control' in full form of BCCI which reads 'Board of Control for Cricket in India'.
 
Ganguly has taken over at a time when the BCCI hasn’t been in the greatest of positions. The Prince of Kolkata became the second Indian skipper after 65 years to be given a massive role. It was Union Minister Anurag Thakur, who put forth Ganguly’s name in an informal meeting at the Trident in Mumbai.
 
However, the enigmatic figure doesn’t believe in the word ‘Control’. “I don’t enjoy that word Control,” Ganguly quoted as saying in a press-conference while answering one of the many questions asked to him during the interaction.
 
Senior journalist Joy Bhattacharjya lauded Ganguly for the "excellent idea", tweeting, "BCCI was a British institution and the word 'control' doesn't fit in with promoting and growing cricket in a free country."
 
Well, Dada people like you even if you failed to change the full form of BCCI in your reign.
