Souav Ganguly Stripped of Kolkata Knight Riders Captaincy and Some Points

You already know that former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has been stripped off the captaincy of Kolkata Knight Riders recently and Brendon McCullum from New Zealand has been handed over the captaincy of KKR. Well, cricket fans of West Bengal are not happy with this decision and they think that it is a dishonor to one of the greatest ever Indian cricketers who is also the country’s most successful captain. Shah Rukh Khan, bollywood star and co-owner of KKR, has said that the decision of taking the captaincy from Ganguly is part of their long term plan.

Well, Shah Rukh Khan may have forgotten one thing that Ganguly knows very well how to make long-term plan and implement it effectively. When he was appointed as the captain of Indian team, Indian cricket was struck by match fixing scandal and their performance on the field matched only with a mediocre team who lacked consistency. It was Ganguly who turned the team around and developed a team ethic resulting into the team being known as ‘Team India’. Ganguly was the man who single handedly nurtured the talented players like Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh and Zaheer Khan, who all got enough support from Captain Ganguly, despite showing series of poor performances. Now, all of these players are the key members of Indian team.

The main problem of Indian cricket is that it is sometimes run by the people who have little knowledge about the game and those people often make a mess while intending to do something intellectual. It seems that Kolkata Knight Riders are also being affected by the people of this kind.
