Ganguly also said that it has only been around four to five days that he took the charge of the president of BCCI. In the short time of him serving as the president, there was the Diwali festivity break. By the looks of it, it would take around a couple of weeks for assessing everything which is needed.
There will be a significant amount of work which they need to do. Currently, BCCI is paying around 13% of the gross revenue towards the domestics players in the country. The players are getting around ₹25 to ₹30 lakhs based on the matches they are playing.
