Sourav Ganguly has taken the role of the President of the BCCI and will resume his duties from October 23, 2019. The former Indian captain left behind the likes of Brijesh Patel, N Srinivasan and was unanimously elected during the elections that happened over the last weekend. No sooner Ganguly was named as the new face of the BCCI, fans started trolling Indian coach Ravi Shastri and expressed doubts about his future. If one may recall the two have always been at loggerheads for a long time now and do not leave a single opportunity to troll each other. The two have grabbed headlines for their statements. Ravi Shastri Trolled After Reports of Sourav Ganguly Becoming New BCCI President, Dada's Fans Ask Team India Coach 'Ab Tera Kya Hoga'.
Needless to say, on becoming the President, a question to Ganguly about Ravi Shastri by the press was unavoidable. During a conversation, Ganguly was asked if he had spoken to the Indian coach after becoming the President. The former Indian captain who has always had cheeky replies up his sleeve was in no mood to give a straight answer. Dada had a counter-question to the journalist and asked him, “Why, what has Ravi Shastri done now?” and broke into laughter.
If one may recall, the two have had a public nasty fall-out in 2017 during the process of the coach selection for the Indian team. It was Ravi Shastri who lost out on the job and Anil Kumble was made the coach of the team. Back then, he had blamed Sourav Ganguly for not being around during his interview. Ganguly in return had labelled him immature.
