Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has spoken out about the rift between Anil Kumble and captain Virat Kohli. He feels that the problem between the two should have been handled in a better way.
"The matter between Kumble and Kohli should have been handled a lot better, by whoever in charge. It was not handled properly," Ganguly admitted while speaking to the media. He is one of the three members of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) that selects the coach.
Ravi Shastri, the former team director, has decided to apply for the position again. Kumble was chosen over him the previous time. Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman are the other two members of the CAC.
The last time Shastri and Ganguly were involved in an open spat. Asked about it, Ganguly replied, "Everybody has got the right to apply. We will find out. I can also apply provided I'm not an administrator.”
Ganguly was on Tuesday named in a seven-member committee headed by IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla to identify important points in the implementation of the Supreme Court order.
"We will have to listen to committee of administrators. I'm not exactly sure what will happen but I will find out," Ganguly said.
CAB as also called an emergent meeting on July 1 to discus Lodha reforms.
"We did not have SGM last year. Till the reforms are done it won't happen. We have informed the members of the meeting to discuss what's the way forward," Ganguly said in a TOI report.
