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.
This could lead to Ajit Agarkar and Venkatesh Prasad be in contention if the duo get shortlisted.
"It will be the one with the most Tests. India is a vast country, so we will try and keep zones in mind. But everyone who has applied and meets the given criteria, stands a chance," Ganguly was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
