How Sourav Ganguly Used To Avoid Coming Under Media Scrutiny

Kolkata: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) captain Sourav Ganguly is perhaps one of the best judges of the kind of media scrutiny cricketers come under.

The former India captain disclosed in a recent interview, how the media scrutiny was dealt with during his tenure as India skipper — he stopped reading newspaper. One of India’s most successful captain said that all players come under the media lens but he personally would get bothered by “half of it”.

Appearing on the “The Ranveer Show” on YouTube, Ganguly was asked about his advice to someone like Virat Kohli, who had come under huge scrutiny for a prolonged lean patch recently. It may be recalled that he finally broke his near-three year-long century drought with his maiden T20I ton in Asia Cup in Dubai.

“Everybody has been under media scrutiny. Just the names keep changing over a period of time,” Ganguly said.

Asked Ganguly how he managed after being “targeted” in the media. “Half of it I won’t get to know because I wouldn’t read so much. I would enter hotels and the first thing I would say at the reception is, ‘Boss, don’t put the newspaper under my door in the morning’,” he divulged.

“But now it’s obviously a lot more. Social media, everything is on your computer, on your phone. But I think cricketers find a way to just shut that off,” he added.
