“The racquet in your hand looks like a ping pong racket”

Chairman of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) Sourav Ganguly revealed the details of a hilarious interaction he had Indian women‘s veteran fast pitcher Jhulan Goswami. Ganguly recalls telling Goswami that the stick in her hand looked like a ping pong racket and suggested changing the willow.

In an interaction on a talk show Behind the scenes with Boria, Ganguly said of his conversation with the nimble bowler:

“She is too tall. So I told her that ‘when I see the cricket racket in your hand, it looks like a ping pong racket. You need to have something different for you to hit the ball’. I could see that she was struggling to line up, balance to play that cricket ball.”

Ganguly added that, even though he has transitioned into an administrator role, his passion for cricket will never go away and he is always willing to help the current generation. The 49-year-old added:

“I am a cricketer, period. I’m incredibly proud of that and it excites me. If I could change someone’s game… I remember talking to Ajinkya Rahane before last year’s Melbourne test and asking him to make some changes to his technique. That’s the knowledge I have and that’s what excites me.”

As captain, Ganguly took over the reins of Indian cricket after the match-fixing scandal in 2000. He ushered in a new era, supporting bright young talents who have already made their mark. turn into match winners.


Ganguly gets a lot of compliments on Ravichandran Ashwin

During the same interaction, Ganguly also praised senior off-spinner player Ravichandran Ashwin for his great contributions to Indian cricket.

The BCCI President has been extremely vocal in his support of Ashwin. Speaking of the veteran off-spinner player, he said:

“Look at the number of winning teams he was on. World Cup 2011, he was part of the winning team for India. In 2013, when he won the Champions Trophy, he was the top bowler in that tournament. When CSK won the IPL, he was their primary bowler, bowling in power matches and tough situations. Looking at his test record, it’s phenomenal. I need not say Ravichandran Ashwin excellent”.

The former captain also hinted at his decision to call up Ashwin for the T20 World Cup, even though he hasn’t played whiteball cricket for India in four years.

Ganguly admitted that he wasn’t sure Ashwin was part of the limited staging. He revealed that it was Virat Kohli who desperately wanted the experience of an outstanding player in the T20 World Cup squad.
