  • It was as a five-year-old that Avishek Dalmiya made his Eden Gardens debut, during the Australia-England 1987 World Cup final.
  • In wanting a smooth transition at the CAB, Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee decided that former India captain Sourav Ganguly would be elevated as the CAB president (he was a joint-secretary at the time of the senior Dalmiya’s demise) and that Avishek would take the position vacated by Ganguly.
  • Last October, in order to helm the BCCI, Ganguly resigned as the CAB chief.
