Final captaincy decision in two days, says John Buchanan

After kicking up a storm by stripping Sourav Ganguly of his team’s sole captaincy role, Kolkata Knight Riders manager John Buchanan on Thursday said he would talk about the issue again in two days.

Buchanan, who on Wednesday announced that KKR would try out more than one captains this season, Buchanan turned up at Eden Gardens amid a palpable uneasiness in the Kolkata Knight Riders camp.

Ganguly, Laxmi Ratan Shukla, Arindam Ghosh and Sourav Sarkar went through the rigours with the Knight Riders support staff.

Perhaps, Buchanan knew about the protest march staged outside Eden Gardens where the Aussie’s effigy was burnt.

Buchanan and Ganguly spent more than two hours together on the field, but surprisingly there was no apparent interaction between the two.

After the training got over at 1700 hrs, the Australian while leaving the stadium said, “I will talk (about this) in two days”

Ganguly did not speak to the media. The Knight Riders team management was apparently not happy with Ganguly’s outburst in the media.

Ganguly had ridiculed the idea of having “rotating captains” for KKR team saying “tomorrow I can also ask for four coaches”.
