Indian cricket in danger: Ganguly to BCCI

By Chaitanya Laxman

Former India captain Saurav Ganguly has written an email to BCCI in which he states that the Indian cricket is in danger and has pointed out that the love and belief of fans on Indian cricket is on the way down. The former skipper has also expressed his displeasure in the functioning of Indian cricket’s current administration.

Ganguly says he is worried about the state of Indian cricket

In the email which Ganguly sent to the BCCI acting president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry on October 30th, the left-hand batsman has written that having played the game for a long period of time, lives of cricketers like him were ruled by winning and losing, and the image of Indian cricket was of paramount importance to them.

He explained that they wake up looking at how their cricket is faring even now. But Ganguly makes it clear that with a deep sense of worry,  he begs 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 unhappy with BCCI’s handling of issues

In the email, Ganguly explained his dissent on the way the harassment case against BCCI CEO is handled by the administration. He pointed out that the committee of CoA from four has come down to two and now the two seems to be divided. He feels that the recent reports of harassment have really made the BCCI look very poorly and more so the way it has been handled.
