BCCI president Sourav Ganguly will deliver a lecture on the third version of the Jagmohan Dalmiya annual conclave on March 17, on the eve of India’s third and ultimate ODI in opposition to South Africa on the Eden Gardens.
“Sourav Ganguly has agreed to deliver the Jagmohan Dalmiya memorial lecture which will be held ahead of the third ODI. He will be the first BCCI president to do the honours,” Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Avishek Dalmiya advised reporters on Wednesday.
Former South African captain Graeme Smith delivered the lecture in 2018 forward of India’s first Twenty20 worldwide in opposition to the West Indies.
Organised in reminiscence of Jagmohan Dalmiya, the conclave is an annual occasion and in 2017 India’s first World Cup successful captain Kapil Dev delivered the lecture.
