BCCI President Sourav Ganguly (Sourav Ganguly) are in discussion these days. Due to the interviews given in the last few days, he is getting a lot of headlines. But Sourav Ganguly is also in controversies. Virat Kohli (Virat KohliQuestions are being raised on the role of BCCI due to the way the captain of the Indian cricket team was removed. This is not the first time that there is no difference of opinion about the issue related to Sourav Ganguly. Something similar happened when he was the captain and was later removed. Even then there was a lot of ruckus. Now the former general manager of BCCI and former manager of Team India, Ratnakar Shetty (Ratnakar Shetty) has opened a new secret about Sourav Ganguly. This secret is related to the first T20 World Cup held in 2007.
Ratnakar Shetty in his book ‘On Board: My Years In BCCI’ It is written that Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly were not unanimous on the issue of playing or not playing in the 2007 T20 World Cup. According to the book, ‘A day before the selectors’ meeting, I got a call from Rahul. He said that he spoke to Sachin and Sourav and both of them agreed that T20 is a game of the youth. Accordingly, he requested that the selectors be told that all three of them are unavailable for the ICC World T20. Dileep (Vengsarkar) and his teammates shortlisted 30 prospects. These three were not there. Later the chairman (Dilip Vengsarkar) told me that he had received a call from Sourav. He said that he is available for selection and the information given to him was wrong.
Dhoni became captain when senior players did not play
In the first T20 World Cup, India’s four big senior players Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and Zaheer Khan did not play. It was told that the senior players had decided by themselves that they would not play in the T20 World Cup and young players should be given a chance. For this reason MS Dhoni was made the captain. Now a new revelation has come from Ratnakar Shetty’s book. It can be believed that in the coming time new information can come in this matter or Sourav Ganguly’s version can also be seen.
