The deadline for filing nominations for this has expired. Ganguly has no one to challenge against the five-member panel.
On September 28, the CAB will hold elections with the convening of its 85th Annual General Meeting (AGM) as per the directives of the BCCI Committee of Administrators (COA). This will be Ganguly’s second term as chairman of the CAB.
