He is confident that like previous events successfully held in India, this tournament will also become a grand success.
“It is a matter of great honour for us to be hosting the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. India has successfully staged several global events since the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in 1987 and I am sure cricketers from around the world would be excited at the prospect of playing in our cricket-loving country,” said Sourav Ganguly in an official ICC release.

He is looking forward to play his role to perfection and help successfully host the 16-team tournament.
“I have enjoyed being part of ICC events as a player and know from experience that nothing beats the buzzing atmosphere of a global cricket event with millions around the world watching every game. I now look forward to playing my part as an administrator as we prepare to host the prestigious event,” Sourav Ganguly said.
