The executive committee will within three months' time elect the office bearers as the former India captain may also occupy the president's post of NCC which is lying vacant after the demise of Jagmohan Dalmiya.
     
The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president received an overwhelming 600-plus votes,  eminent lawyer Ushanath Banerjee, who too was elected into the 21-member executive committee, said.
     
According to a joint statement signed by chief public prosecutor, chairman and working president Manik Bhattacharya, 614 members directly or through proxy were present in the
meeting.
     
"Meeting was extremely harmonious and cordial, we have some highly experienced members in the committee which will elect the office bearers in three months' time," another
executive member Avishek Dalmiya, who is also the CAB joint-secretary said.
     
Earlier, a revolting NCC group had claimed gross irregularities in the AGM and moved city civil court. Countering the charges, eminent lawyer Ushanath Banerjee termed it a gimmick with the sole vested interest of getting a few posts and tickets.
