Kolkata, Jan 3: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday calmed talk about him taking over as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President, saying "it's too early" to draw any such conclusions.

"It's better not to take my me. There is no reason to take my me. It's too early," Ganguly told reporters a day after the Supreme Court, in a historic verdict, sacked board President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke for not implementing the July 18 recommendations of the Justice R.M. Lodha Committee.

The bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud also said that all the office-bearers of the BCCI and its affiliate state units, who are in conflict with the recommendation of the Lodha Committee, would demit office.

Ganguly, who is currently the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) President said nobody has got any choice but to implement the Lodha Committee recommendations in toto.

"We have got no choice. Nobody has a choice but to implement them," said Ganguly, who took over the top post of the CAB after predecessor Jagmohan Dalmiya's demise in 2015.

"I still have two more years in the position. The recommendations have put a cap of three years for one post," Ganguly said. IANS
