Kolkata: Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly on Sunday started a new innings as a cricket administrator - with his unanimous election to the joint secretary's post at the Cricket Association of Bengal's 83rd annual general meeting here.

Ganguly, a talismanic left hand bat during his playing days who captained India to the world cup final in 2003, followed in the footsteps of his illustrious predecessors and contemporaries like Polly Umrigar, Bishan Singh Bedi, Dilip Vengsarkar, Javagal Srinath, Brijesh Patel, Shivlal Yadav and Anil Kumble who achieved varying degrees of success as cricket administrators.

Ganguly's election, however, was a foregone conclusion with there being no challenger to his candidacy.
