Former captain releases email through his brother

In a reversal of sorts, Sourav Ganguly has launched an attack against his long-time mentor Jagmohan Dalmiya, accusing the former cricket board chief of "playing" with his career.
Ganguly, who lost his place in the Indian team after a spat with Greg Chappell, the coach, chose the upcoming presidential elections for the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) to hit out at Dalmiya, facing a challenge for the post from Prasun Mukherjee, the police commissioner.

He just likes to be the centre of attention. I hate to say but Looks like his international career is over. he has been playing for northans for few weeks and haven't scored a fifty yet. He needed to score some runs to get back in form and to be considered in Indian national team.

when two selfish souls unite...........a fallout is quite normal.

July 22, 2006, 08:43 AM
to me it always seems that ganguly is more interested in using his mouth than his bat (was it the reason that he uses his mouth a lot made him quite a successful captain?)

July 22, 2006, 09:20 AM
I never liked ganguly but i became sympathetic when he was dropped but looks like it was not a bad decision. he keeps getting out cheaply

July 24, 2006, 12:44 PM

Overseas players are customarily offered a rest when touring teams visit, but not Sourav Ganguly, who is in the penultimate week of his disappointing mid-season sojourn with Northamptonshire. On reflection, he probably wishes that he had been.
After the county slipped to six for two in their second innings, Ganguly entered the fray seeking to improve on his lamentable return of 10 runs in four first-class innings for the club.
He improved on it to the tune of five runs before being forced to retire hurt when, shaping to pull, he edged a steeply rising delivery from Shahid Nazir into his chin. The result was two butterfly stitches to a small gash and the former India captain did not feel fit enough to return as his temporary team-mates were bowled out for just 140 to leave the tourists needing 160 for victory.

Talking to the reporters Sunday night, Chakraborty said: ‘Sourav Ganguly no longer needs Jagmohan Dalmiya. He has got someone else to go ahead and so he has passed these comments against him.’
Asked if Ganguly would be termed a traitor, he said: ‘No, not a traitor. But certainly an opportunist. In order to fulfil own dreams and ambitions, some people just don’t give much importance to ethics. These people just take the chances as they present themselves. These people can use a trusted as a ladder to return to light from darkness. You can call it something like this.’
‘Early in his career when he was only 13 I had taken the personal initiative to send Sourav to play in county cricket in England. This was not once but twice. But has he ever talked about it? Forget talking about it he never bothered to thank me with a call on his return.’
However, in an interview to a city daily from London, when asked about it, Sourav said: ‘Yes, its true (Subhas’s role in his early career).’
Asked about the CAB elections and his failure to bring in an understanding, he said: ‘Yes, the chief minister had given me a task, but I had failed.’
Meanwhile, PWD minister and Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) heavyweight Kshiti Goswami also voiced his displeasure against Sourav.
‘The email from Sourav has no purpose and the timing is just not right.
‘Its because of Dalmiya that Chandi Ganguly’s son has become Sourav Ganguly and the man is responsible for bringing some of the biggest cricket spectacles to Kolkata. But most importantly he has turned both BCCI and CAB from two cash stripped ailing bodies into cash cows,’ he said.
‘CAB is an independent autonomous organisation and it will be best if it were to be left in that manner. We would not like any interference from any quarters.’
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, who is on a sticky wicket now after the tables were turned against Sourav, is keeping silent. City police commissioner Prasun Mukherjee, backed by the chief minister, is the challenger of Dalmiya for the post of president in the July 30 CAB elections.

Ganguly realizes there has been a shift in power and he has no other way to get back into the team unless he makes his position clear. He decides to go against Dalmiya which is the only way to get sympathy from anti-Dalmiya Indian board.

July 26, 2006, 08:28 AM
no way he is returning to the national side, he is in poor form

SC Ganguly c Phillips b Middlebrook 9 (10m 11b 2x4 0x6) sr: 81.81

his last innings, against essex, northans could drop him if he continiues this form

July 26, 2006, 11:28 AM
ah well i guess that happens to a cricketer's life. His form is way down now. But he was great even few years ago. What exactly could have happened.
I hope not our Ash turns out to be like this.

July 26, 2006, 12:10 PM
off form ganguly is better than ash. but ganguly is taking wickets

Sourav is a ‘bachcha’

Dubbing Sourav Ganguly a ‘bachcha’ (kid), Jagmohan Dalmiya, the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal, today said he was committed to helping all players including Ganguly.
‘He is a bachcha. It’s not right to talk about bachchas,’ Dalmiya said responding to persistent questions from journalists on whether he would still back Ganguly who had sent an e-mail days before the CAB elections accusing the ruling faction of ‘playing’ with his career. --- newAgBD


Ganguly may be very shrewed and successful captain, but compared to Ghagu politician like Dalmiya, he is indeed a "botuley dudh khawa Bacha". Just look the diference hoiw both tackle their confict in public versus private.

Learn for him Gangu learn from the boss.

August 2, 2006, 12:05 AM
:D :D Fazal u are a kid:D :D

I think Ganguly played his cards right.
He has been able to please Bindra and Pawar. There is already talk about reinstating him! Inspite of Ganguly's poor form!

If Ganguly gets back to team Dalmiya will be proved to be a kid!

Lets see who have the last laugh.

In my end I am pretty sure they (Bindra and Pawar) will play games with Ganguly and Ganguly fans (like you)... they will give hope.... pump up the expectation again.... but at the end they will snatch the life-line from him when they select the final 11.

Its like showing a lollypop to a crying baby to pacify him temporarily... unwraping it... and then when the baby is about to lick the lollypop.... suddenly snatching the candy from his hand. Why don't you understand that ... they are just playing with your immotion.:lol:

But at the end .... promise that you wouldn't cry.... whould you?

Just as Zimbabwe did yesterday ?:D ;) :D ;) :D ;) :p :p

August 3, 2006, 08:31 AM
and now Dalmiya won the election...
he he..damn..one two many twists in this ongoin saga ....

lets just see who comes on top

August 3, 2006, 11:27 AM
Just as Zimbabwe did yesterday ?:D ;) :D ;) :D ;) :p :p

Wrong. For me, Its not Zimbabwe that did anything yesterday cry worthy, its the selectors who really made me mad even before the game started.:mad:

August 9, 2006, 10:09 AM
Ganguly selected in the 30 man squad. lol.

This is becoming really hilarious.

"But most attention will surround the return of Ganguly into the selectors' thoughts.

The left-hander has scored 10,123 runs in 279 one-dayers but his last ODI match was in September 2005 in Zimbabwe. His recent five-week stint at Northamptonshire was far from impressive but chief selector Kiran More defended their decision." - BBC Sports.

Ganguly has been left out from the final squad for the tri series at Malaysia. Sreesanth and Kumble are the other two who got the axe. And the dust settles.

October 2, 2006, 10:06 AM
ganguly failed to impress once again. he score 24 today in a batting friendly pitch. but he will have another chance tomorrow

October 3, 2006, 09:39 AM
........and a 3 aginst India Red in today's match. Cricinfo says -
"He had come to Chennai in an effort to force his way back into the national squad but the southern city has not brought him any luck."

....and I guess, it ends the episode of SC Ganguly.
I feel sorry for him :-(

October 3, 2006, 09:48 AM
ganguly's day are over. feel sorry for him

When a 10000+ batsman loses his touch he is not welcome in the natioal team. He should have known that and bowed out long time back without trying to force the issue. He was a good captain for India. This team is no longer his. This is Chapel's team.

October 10, 2006, 08:18 PM
hes too headstrong to ever get back in even if he gets runs

October 10, 2006, 10:22 PM
Lol! You guyes seem to be more concerned about others while BD loses pathetically to every team!
