In 2000, when Sourav Ganguly took over as captain of the Indian team from Sachin Tendulkar, he had made some unflattering remarks about a cricket official from Haryana named Ranbir Singh Mahendra, who was the team manager on Ganguly's first tour to Australia, way back in 1991-92.

The same Mahendra has now been elected president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
