Batting legend VVS Laxman on Tuesday said Indian cricket would undoubtedly continue to prosper under former skipper Sourav Ganguly, who is set to take over the reins of the BCCI.

Ganguly, a veteran of 113 Tests and 311 ODIs, on Monday filed his nomination papers for the post of the BCCI president in Mumbai.

The former Indian skipper is expected to be elected unopposed at the board’s Annual General Meeting on October 23.

“Congrats @SGanguly99 on becoming the President of @BCCI. I have got no doubt that under your leadership Indian Cricket will continue to prosper. Wishing you lots of success in your new role Dada,” Laxman tweeted.

Ganguly thanked his former teammate for the message.

“Thank u Vvs ..your contributions will be very important,” Ganguly tweeted.

The 47-year-old, one of the finest Indian captains, will hold the post of the BCCI president for a mere nine months. He will have to demit office in July, due to compulsory cooling-off period. PTI
