Kolkata: Sourav Ganguly today said he was "planning to start something" to help a lot of people in a Twitter post, hinting at a new "chapter of his life".

"Today, I am planning to start something that I feel will probably help a lot of people. I hope you continue your support as I enter this chapter of my life," said the cricket board president.

The cryptic tweet triggered massive speculation that Sourav Ganguly, 49, is joining politics.

"2022 marks the 30th year since the start of my journey with cricket in 1992. Since then, Cricket has given me a lot. Most importantly, it has given me the support of all of you. I want to thank every single person who has been a part of the journey, supported me, and helped me reach where I am today," wrote the cricket legend. 

Last month, Sourav Ganguly had hosted Union Home Minister Amit Shah at his home in Bengal.

As the dinner meeting sparked resentment in Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress, he spoke about his close ties with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

"Our honourable Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is a person very close to me. I had approached her to help up this institute," he told reporters.

He also dismissed speculation about the Amit Shah dinner. "Speculation is rife... but I have known him (Amit Shah) since 2008. While playing, I used to meet him. There's nothing more than that," he said.
