It seems with every passing day, controversy has been following former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly. The Prince of Calcutta was in the centre of news yet again, this time, however, to an incident not related to the field of cricket. Apparently, Ganguly was involved in an altercation with a fellow pacer while travelling in an outstation train.

 

As per a video uploaded by a new channel called Headlines India, a statement says that Ganguly embarked on his first outstation rail journey in over 15 years and had reserved a seat for himself in an AC compartment of the outstation train.

 

The former Indian skipper was accompanied by officials of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), a body which he heads. Upon entering the compartment and going to his designated seat though, Ganguly found someone else seated there.

 

The chairperson of the CAB then requested the person to vacate the seat since it was registered in his name but the person bluntly refused from doing so. In the due process, the two got involved in a war of words which led in Ganguly storming out of the train.

 

The former skipper was finally given a seat once the matter was taken care off. Below is the video reporting the entire incident.
