Sourav Ganguly: Action against Ishan, Shreyas right: Sourav Ganguly | leader

Kolkata, News Agency : BCCI's decision to drop Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer from annual contracts is right, says former captain and former BCCI president Saurabh Ganguly. BCCI dropped Iyer and Kishan from annual contract and it is a big decision. Both of them participated in the ODI World Cup campaign in India last year. Kishan last played for India in November 2023, while Iyer was a member of the Indian squad for the second Test against England at Visakhapatnam. (Sourav Ganguly)

Ganguly said that BCCI's decision regarding Kishan and Iyer was correct. Contracted players are also expected to play domestic cricket. BCCI wants him to play first class cricket. I am surprised that Shreyas and Ishan have not played in major tournaments like the Ranji Trophy. Players must play first-class cricket. (Sourav Ganguly)

'These two are wrong. You want to play first-class cricket. Once you become a contracted player, you are expected to play. Shreyas Iyer will play for Mumbai in the semi-final in a few days,' Ganguly added.

He added, 'Kishan left the tour of South Africa midway and did not play in the series against England either. I was surprised by his behavior. I wonder why Ishan has not played despite the fact that he is a member of the Indian team's all-format squad and has a huge contract in the IPL.'

BCCI has taken a tough stance and rightly so. Ganguly added, “When you are signed, you have to follow the rules.” (Sourav Ganguly)

Rohit Sharma is a great captain

Former Indian captain and former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has heaped praise on India's captain Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma was made the captain of the Indian team when Ganguly was the 'BCCI' president. He has that ability so we made him the captain and his performance has proved that our decision was right,” Ganguly said. Rohit Sharma was handed the captaincy of the Indian ODI and T20 teams in December 2021. After that within a month he was also entrusted with the captaincy of the Test team. Ganguly said, 'Rohit Sharma is a tremendous captain. We have seen how he led in the World Cup. I think the Indian team was the best team in the tournament before losing the final. He has many IPL titles to his name.
