Ganguly majorly lost his creditability in the eyes of the audience and the board after his fallout with former Indian skipper Virat Kohli. After T20 World Cup 2020, Kohli wanted to step down as the T20 captain to shed off some burden but wanted to continue as the ODI and test skipper.

But as several former cricketers like World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev, Sourav Ganguly also believed that split captaincy won’t work in India and hence he asked Kohli to step down as ODI captaincy also. But when Kohli refused to do so, the former skipper was sacked from the captaincy and Rohit Sharma was appointed as the new captain the white ball formats.

There was no proper farewell for Kohli as the ODI captain and removing him from the Indian captaincy over a tweet didn’t go well the fans as well and since then, Sourav Ganguly has been having a tough time

India Vs New Zealand T20I series

The Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) has sacked the curator of Lucknow’s Ekana Cricket Stadium after he prepared a vicious turner that produced a low scoring game for the second T20 between India and New Zealand on Sunday.

Indian T20I captain Hardik Pandya was irate and did not mince words as he termed the Lucknow wicket “shocker of a pitch”.

The low-scoring affair saw the Black Caps restricted to 99 for eight in 20 overs while India managed to barely scrape past the line with one ball to spare.

In a statement, the UPCA said the curator has been removed and replaced by Sanjeev Kumar Agarwal, an experienced curator, adding that they will turn things around in a month’s time.

Elaborating on why the Lucknow wicket turned out to be a rank turner, the UPCA said that the pitch had already been host to a ton of domestic cricket, which was mostly played on all the centre wickets ahead of the India-New Zealand game.

They said the curator should’ve left one or two strips for an international game, adding that the surface was overused and bad weather didn’t give the curators enough time to prepare a fresh wicket.

A report quoting a UPCA source revealed that the new curator, who has prepared wickets in Bangladesh in the past before being removed in October last year, has been tasked to set things right as far as pitch-making is concerned. He will work closely with veteran BCCI curator Taposh Chatterjee.

Indian skipper Hardik Pandya has been unhappy with the surfaces on offer in the first two T20Is of the series so far.

In a statement after the game, Hardik expressed his anger at the curators and termed the Lucknow pitch as a shocker of a wicket. Hardik said that while he’s all for competitive wickets for other formats, however, the surfaces on offer during the first two games were not made for T20 cricket.
