Kolkata: Ravi Shastri argued that he gave a good interview and gave a good presentation for the future planning of Team India. But he was not selected. Instead Anil Kumble’s name was announced as the head coach of the Indian team.
Former Team Director Ravi Shastri directly accused Sourav Ganguly, a member of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). Ravi Shastri suspected that Sourav Ganguly is behind Kumble’s selection instead of him.
Ravi Shastri and Anil Kumble both were the competitors of the post for Team India’s head coach. On questioning Ravi Shastri about Sourav Ganguly, he said,
“Please ask Sourav and not me about what problem he has with me”. But no comment was received from Sourav Ganguly over Shastri’s comment.
