Ganguly backs the one with more Tests as selectors' contender
There have been certain speculations doing rounds about a particular BCCI constitution clause which mentions, 'the senior-most Test player among the members of the committee shall be appointed the chairman'.
However, Ganguly has already ruled out this possibility.
"It will be the one with the most Tests. But everyone, who has applied and meets the given criteria, stands a chance," Ganguly told Hindustan Times.
