As reports of former India captain Sourav Ganguly's chance of making it to cricket administration are doing the rounds, Bengal formers felt that the left-hand batsman is capable of doing good job there as well.

"As a captain Sourav was very good and as a cricket administrator also he should be fine," former India player and national selector Ashok Malhotra said.

"Sourav is very much welcome in cricket administration provided he can devote the time required. He has to decide whether would continue to play or work as a cricket administration," Malhotra added.

Another former cricketer and national selector Sambaran Banerjee also felt that Ganguly's knowledge about the game would be beneficial for the Indian cricket.

"It would be a welcome move. The more technical people like him join the cricket administration, the better. The Cricket Association of Bengal would definitely get the benefit of his vast experience," he said.

Former ICC chief and currently CAB president Jagmohan Dalmiya also earlier welcomed Ganguly's possible entry into the administration.

According to report available Ganguly would be attending the forthcoming CAB Annual General Meeting on July 31 and is likely to be included in the working committee thereafter.
