The president of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) and Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly wrote a detailed letter to the BCCI’s office bearers. In his letter, he has said about his “deep sense of fear and worry” for Indian Cricket. He expressed his concerns over the Indian Cricket Boards functioning in the recent days and the popularity of the game is “in danger” due to this.
It has also been stated that for the first time Ganguly has spoken publicly about the “appalling” way, the current Indian national team head coach Ravi Shastri’s selection. He also made critics about the changes made by the board for playing condition in domestic cricket in the middle of a season and the recent anonymous sexual harassment complaint filed against Rahul Johri.
This letter from Ganguly came out just one day after the CoA’s submission of its tenth status report to the Supreme Court. Also, Ganguly’s CAB has been placed in it as partially compliant to the reforms as per the recommendations of the Lodha Committee. Ratnakar Shetty who also wrote an email to the Head of Cricket Operations Mr. Saba Karim and Secretary of Cricket Association of Bihar Mr. Aditya Varma said that Ganguly’s frustrations are not singular and probably many feel the same.
