Former Indian team captain and CAB president Sourav Ganguly repied to the comments made by Ravi Shastri, who slamed Ganguly for not being present at the interview to select India’s coach.
Ganguly said, “If Ravi thinks because of me that he is not the coach of Team India, then he is living in a fool’s world. Ravi has made a personal attack which was not expected and is very saddening.”
Ganguly retorted: “I am extremely surprised and saddened on the comments of Ravi Shastri. It was already previously decided that I will attend the CAB working committee meeting on the day of these coach elections.”
He added, “I say this with anger that my counter piece of advice to Shastri is that he should have been present physically and not holidaying in Bangkok for such an important event. Ravi should have shown some more maturity before going public about it.”
