Sourav Ganguly Refuses to Comment on MS Dhoni’s Exclusion From BCCI’s Central Contract
The BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly has refused to say anything over MS Dhoni’s exclusion from the BCCI’s annual central contract list. The announcement had disappointed especially Dhoni’s fans who were eagerly waiting for him to be back in the national side. However, neither the board President nor the wicketkeeper-batsman had said anything in the public.
Nearing to 40, the ex-skipper of India team Dhoni has not been a part of any international game ever since the World Cup 2019 concluded in England. And with his sabbatical period extending to more than six months, the rumours of him retiring from the game are once doing rounds in the media. However, Dhoni has returned to the nets in Jharkhand to prepare for the IPL 2020.
Veteran cricketer’s form in the 13 edition of the league will also decide whether he will be in the squad for the upcoming World T20 tournament in Australia, later this year. However, when asked about the omission of the former skipper from the impressive annual list, the BCCI president firmly refused to say anything about it.
“I can’t comment on this,” Ganguly said in his straight forward response.
Ganguly backs up the merger of the famous Mohun Bagan with ATK:
On the other hand, the BCCI president Ganguly backs up the merger of the Kolkata’s famous football club, Mohun Bagan with ATK. According to him, this is the right way to move forward, giving the example of English club Manchester.
“Game has professionalized. This is the right way forward. Many big clubs like Manchester have also done this. Only time will tell (about the success). This is the way forward,” Ganguly said.
In the meantime, the BCCI president and the ex-Indian cricketer has also posted his views about the merger on his Twitter account.
“A momentus partnership for Bengal football. I have no doubt ATK and Mohun Bagan will be torchbearers of moving Indian football forward together. @IndSuperLeague,” he wrote.
