- Dilip Vengsarkar is annoyed with BCCI president Sourav Ganguly for the ‘awful’ treatment of the Virat Kohli captaincy section.
Previous India chief Dilip Vengsarkar is annoyed with BCCI president Sourav Ganguly for the ‘awful’ treatment of the Virat Kohli captaincy section. Kohli’s evacuation as commander of India’s ODI group has been gotten with many blended responses.
However, Vengsarkar, who himself is a previous executive of selectors, feels it was not up to Ganguly to say something in the selectors’ interest.
“Indeed, Ganguly had no business to talk for the benefit of the determination advisory group. Ganguly is the leader of BCCI. Any issue about choice or captaincy, the director of the determination advisory group ought to speak,” Vengsarkar told Khaleej Times in a meeting.
The entire thing heightened when Ganguly let media know that he and the BCCI mentioned Kohli to proceed as India’s T20I skipper; however, the 33-year-old player didn’t tune in. Despite what is generally expected, Kohli excused Ganguly’s articulation, saying that his call to venture down as commander of the T20I group was generally welcomed and that he wasn’t approached to rethink the choice. This caused a commotion in Indian cricket, with many pitting it as generally a versus Ganguly/BCCI challenge.
“Ganguly talked about the entire thing; clearly, Virat needed to present his defense clear. I accept it ought to have been between the executive of the determination board of trustees and the chief.
A chief is chosen or eliminated by the determination panel; that is not Ganguly’s purview by any means,” the previous India hitter called attention to.
Vengsarkar was astounded at how the whole episode was dealt with, adding that a player and commander of Kohli’s resolution, who has contributed such a huge amount towards Indian cricket and his country, merited a superior farewell. He referenced that this well-established act of the board firing Indian skippers matter-of-factly needs to change.
“It has forever been the case right from 1932 (when the main Indian group was chosen). When we saw four chiefs in five Test matches, however, indeed, things should change now. Kohli, you need to regard him. He has accomplished such a great deal for the nation, so much Indian cricket. However, how they managed him, it should have certainly harmed him,” he said.
