Powered by Firework Sourav Ganguly was recently elected as the new BCCI President and many believe the age of corruption in cricket in India will come to an abrupt end as ‘Dada’ is in control of the reigns. The former Indian captain is strong on ethics and also promises not to meddle in team selection affairs as that is out of his mandate.Advertisement Ganguly spoke to Hindustan Time at length about many interesting topics.Advertisement On Split Captaincy in white-ball cricket“It has often been wondered whether Rohit Sharma’s experience of leading the Mumbai Indians in the IPL and also the national side in the absence of Kohli is enough for him to be made the white-ball captain. I don’t think that is required to be even discussed now,” said Ganguly.Advertisement On his new role“I have an enormous belief in myself. You give me something and if it needs to be turned around, I think I will. And that nobody became a good cricketer sitting in the dressing room. You will only be respected if you take a difficult challenge head-on. Give me responsibility and I will give it my best shot. Leave me alone and I might fall asleep.”How difficult is it to deal with Virat Kohli?“Not difficult at all. I just won’t get involved in team selection matters,” said Ganguly.Other measures to increase interest in Tests“These things move in a cycle. Yes, I was disappointed with the performance of South Africa on their last tour but I guess they need some time to get things in order and be the team I remember playing against. It is the same with Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Some time ago, Australia were not doing all that well but they have now turned things around.”On the national selection committee“We will look at people who have experience and competence.” Advertisementlast_img read more
