Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly was known for his sheer aggression and the will to never back down from any situation. Ganguly was the dream captain any cricketer could imagine, as he wouldn’t back down fighting for his very own players.


Post retirement as well, Ganguly remains a controversial figure with his bold remarks that emerge straight from the heart. After being involved in a controversy with former Indian Team Director Ravi Shastri, the Price of Kolkata opened up about his thoughts on Shastri.


Ganguly also made an interesting revelation about his former IPL franchise owner and Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan. The southpaw spoke on the sets of a Bengali Talkshow “Apur songsar” and below are some of the excerpts from his episode on the show.


  1. How many marks will you give to Shah Rukh Khan and Sourav Ganguly as a team manager?

Ganguly: I will give 6 out of 10 to Shah Rukh And 10 out of 10 to me. Ganguly further claimed that the reason for  giving SRK 6 is because he interfered with team selection. 

  1. How many marks will you give to Anil Kumble and Ravi Shastri?

Ganguly:  I will give 7 out of 10 to Ravi Shastri And 9 out of 10 to Anil

  1. What kind of problem did you faced with VVS LAXMAN?

Ganguly : He always used to bath before coming on to bat

  1. Why are you not in Ravi Shastri’s list of best captain?

Ganguly:  He didn’t watch cricket that time!

  1. If you are a news channel reporter what do you want to ask Greg Chappel

Ganguly: Why is he such a fool?

  1. On dropping players…

Ganguly: If Nehra is dropped from the team he used to come in my room at night and will ask me why he was dropped. He will bring his last six matches stats and his stats against Australia. And if Kumble is dropped from the team he stops talking for 2 days.

  1. Mohun Bagan or ATK?

Ganguly: ATK
