‘He Is Wearing Too Many Hats’, Dilip Vengsarkar Slams Sourav Ganguly

Mumbai: Former India skipper Dilip Vengsarkar slammed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly. Vengsarkar said that he is wearing “too many hats”.

Vengsarkar alleged Ganguly “on speaking behalf of IPL chairman Brijesh Patel and Chief selector Sunil Joshi instead of allowing them to explain their decisions.

Recently, Ganguly said that Rohit Sharma should tread carefully while taking decision on competing for his team Mumbai Indians in the playoffs, as he will be risking aggravating the hamstring tear due to which he was excluded from the team.

Since then, Rohit has stepped up for Mumbai Indians in the past two games of Indian Premier League 2020.

Vengsarkar said, “It’s quite astonishing to see the Ganguly wearing so many hats as he speaks on behalf of the supposedly appointed chairman of selectors, Sunil Joshi, as why ‘X’ was dropped and ‘Y’ was not selected and why ‘Z’ was not considered, besides how somebody is still not fit,” was quoted as saying by The Times of India.

He further said, “When the IPL dates and venues were being discussed and organized, he was speaking on behalf of the IPL chairman. Sadly, time and again he’s sticking his neck out on behalf of those who are capable of taking decisions and explaining them on their own. Is he undermining their credentials? Or does he feel he knows more than the others?”

I always believed the game should be run by former cricketers and was expecting a lot from Ganguly. However, whatever I have seen so far is beginning to change my mind,” he added.

Vengsarkar asked that it was not clear about who has been taking the decisions while selecting the Indian team.

“I really don’t know who calls the shots while selecting the squad. Is it the BCCI officials or the selectors? If Rohit joins the team and Virat Kohli is not available for the last two Tests, Ajinkya Rahane, the already appointed vice-captain for the longer format, will have to lead the side and not Rohit.”

“I wonder what Ganguly has to say about these issues,” he concluded.
