As unexpected for many as his test century on debut, former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly is set to be the next BCCI chief. Was there a political trade-off ahead of the Bengal polls? Will we see Mr Ganguly as a politician next? Just how did Sourav Ganguly manage to become the consensus candidate over Brijesh Patel who was thought to be the favourite? Some reports have said that Amit Shah, whose son Jay Shah will also be on the board now, had a word with BJP's Anurag Thakur who helped ensure that at a critical get together of top cricket honchos Sourav Ganguly got through. But does that now mean that Sourav Ganguly may have future political aspirations or obligations?
