Kolkata, Feb 8 (IANS) Former cricketer Sourav Ganguly is all set to begin a new innings as compere of a Bengali TV reality show in June.
Ganguly, India’s cricket captain who retired from the game late last year, has already inked a deal with popular Bengali TV channel Zee Bangla, according to a report in the Ananda Bazar Patrika.
“Yes, I have agreed to this proposal. I only know I have to conduct a quiz show,” Ganguly said in the report.
