After being axed as the ‘fixed’ skipper of the Kolkata Knight Riders, Saurav Ganguly on Wednesday said he was never consulted on the captaincy issue.
The former India skipper, in an exclusive interview to Times Now, said he was not aware about the issue.
“I learnt about the captaincy issue from the press,” said Ganguly. “I was never consulted about the issue on captaincy,” added dada.
Speaking on the issue, the Bengal Tiger said Team owner Shah Rukh Khan will take a final call on the issue.
On a disappointing note, dejected dada said, “cricket is all about giving players confidence and security.”
However, he was confident on his responsibility. “I have to play well for the team and my personal reputation,” he said.
“I was never have been in such a situation where there are three skippers,” added Saurav.
Earlier, Kolkata Knight Riders coach John Buchanan has dropped Sourav Ganguly as “fixed” captain of the IPL team for the Twenty20 tournament to be held in South Africa from April 18.
The team will have four captains, team coach John Buchanan announced on Wednesday in Kolkata.
He said the decision to have multiple captains has nothing to do with Ganguly’s performance or fitness and denied any rift in the team.
