There were reports about Dalmiya's desire for Ganguly to head the BCCI technical committee but the former skipper refused to comment of the issue.

"I will see when it comes," Ganguly said. Dalmiya taking over BCCI to job may also turn out to be a windfall of sorts for the Cricket Association of Bengal which is expecting to host the final of World Twenty20 next year.

"We expect to get big matches for the next World Cup including a bid for the final," an official said, adding that the first Working Committee meeting of the Board after the election of new office bearers may be held in the third week of this month here.
