Sourav Ganguly is one of the best captain Indian cricket ever had. He was known for his never back attitude and sheer aggression on the field during his playing days.
Dada is never shy of making bold statements even after his retirement, and recently on the sets of a Bengali Talkshow “Apur songsar”, the Price of Kolkata made some interesting revelations about the Kolkata Knight Riders owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Ravi Shastri and others.
Here are some of the excerpts from his episode on the Bengali 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.
2.) 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
3.) What kind of problem did you faced with VVS Laxman?
Ganguly: He always used to bath before coming on to bat
4.) Why are you not in Ravi Shastri’s list of best captain?
Ganguly: He didn’t watch cricket that time!
5.) If you are a news channel reporter what do you want to ask Greg Chappel
Ganguly: Why is he such a fool?
6.) 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.
7.) Mohun Bagan or ATK?
8.) KKR or Pune
Ganguly : KKR
