Everybody Will Be Respected Till I Am Around: Sourav Ganguly On MS Dhoni
The appointment of Sourav Ganguly is all set to revolutionize BCCI’s working and with a former captain being the board’s boss, the communication between the board and players could be better than before. A big hint of it was given by Ganguly, who, while talking about MS Dhoni, said that every player will be respected till he is around.
“MS Dhoni’s achievement has made India proud. When you sit down and take note of what he has done, you say ‘Wow. Champions don’t finish very quickly. Till I am around, everybody will be respected,” he said.
Through this, Ganguly gave clear signs that he might have a talk with Dhoni regarding his future but he (Dhoni) will be given freedom to decide whether he wants to continue to play or whether he wants to retire.
Ganguly did not have that backing during his time. Former India coach Greg Chappell’s incoming saw the veteran cricketer losing captaincy and his place in the team. Ironically, Ganguly had himself recommended the name of Chappell for the job.
The things have now changed and in 2017, the board backed captain Virat Kohli when Anil Kumble resigned from the post. No one questioned the skipper and Ravi Shastri made his comeback into the dressing room smoothly.
It is not known when Ganguly will meet Dhoni but a meeting between the two might take place soon. It has already been confirmed that the BCCI’s President will table a meting with Kohli tomorrow.
The duo is expected to talk on several matters, with Dhoni availability also one of the points of the meeting.
Ganguly, who was a surprise pick for the top post, will hold the position till September 2020 before he will have to serve a cooling-off period. He has earlier been the President of Cricket Association of Bengal.
Ganguly has quit the post and is also not associated with Delhi Capitals in IPL. He has also given up commentary till the time he is the President of BCCI
