Though this time he presented a much clearer picture of the scenario stating that this decision must be left on the legendary Wicket-keeper batsman himself. “Being an iconic cricketer for years and most successful limited-overs captain of the Indian team, his decisions must be respected” Ganguly said.
Sourav Ganguly, who was one the greatest cricketers and long-serving captain of Indian Cricket team, is well known to manage Iconic Players and give them the due respect and an environment to feel grateful for their achievements for Indian Cricket. During his Captaincy stint, he managed Icons like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman, Zahir Khan and Virendra Sehwag giving them the well-deserved respect and helped Indian Cricket reach the new heights after match-fixing fiasco in 1990’s.
“I can’t say this here. We have had discussions with MS Dhoni,” Ganguly said at the India Today Conclave East. “We will leave it at that. Somebody of that stature of MS Dhoni any respect. The BCCI can’t be thankful enough for what he has done to Indian cricket. I have always said it’s on MS Dhoni at the moment. It’s on MS Dhoni. We will address that as and when it comes. Things should remain in closed doors, especially when it comes to dealing with legendary names,”
“Yes (I have spoken to him since taking over as BCCI president). We are in touch. We speak to Virat Kohli as well. We speak to the selectors. That’s where it lies at the moment,” Ganguly added.
MS Dhoni has been the most successful captain for India winning all ICC trophies during his regime. Now, in the twilight of his career, he must be respected for what he has done for Indian Cricket.
