XtraTime Web Desk: Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly who has been regarded as one of the most respected figures on Tuesday wrote a letter to the top office bearers of BCCI by stating that he is very much concerned about the way Indian board is currently functioning.
“I write this mail to you all with the deep sense of fear as to where indian cricket administration is going..Having played the game for a long period of time, were Our lives were ruled by winning and losing ,and the image of indian cricket was of paramount importance to us. We wake up looking at how our cricket is faring even now,” Ganguly wrote.
As per Ganguly the current work in BCCI have betrayed millions of cricket fans who love this game very much. “But with deep sense of worry, (I used the word worry )I beg to state that the way things have gone in the last couple of years ,the authority of indian cricket to the world and the love and belief of millions of fans is on the way down,” Ganguly added.
Ganguly further opined that the harassment charges against Johri had portrayed the board in a very poor taste and the current decision-making had also created plenty of confusion.
“I don’t know how far it’s true ,but the recent reports of harassment has really made the bcci look very poorly ..more so the way it has been handled .. The committee of COA from four has come down to two and now the two seems to be divided .. Cricketing rules are changed in the middle of a season ,which has never been heard off ..decisions made in committees are turned around with complete disrespect ,my experience in the matter of coach selection was appalling (the less said the better )..One of my friends who is involved in matters relating to functioning of board asked me who should they go to..I had no answer ..I had to ask who should I invite for an international game from a particular association as I did not know what was going on,” Ganguly wrote.
Sourav feels that the Indian cricket is in deep danger and the top officials of BCCI should look at this matter seriously. “Indian cricket with its massive following has been built over the years of hard work from superb administrators and greatest of cricketers who have managed to bring thousands of fans to the ground..I at the present moment, think it’s in danger .. Hope people are listening,” Ganguly signed off.
