If reports are to be believed, then Sourav Ganguly was shown doors after Cricket Board expressed their disappointment over his performance as BCCI President. Former India captain will not be reappointed as BCCI president in the upcoming elections on October 18. Most likely former experienced all-rounder Roger Binny will take over as the new president.

The entire board including Sourav Ganguly was recently granted a second straight term by the Supreme Court. Ganguly was the first former cricketer who took up the role of BCCI president in 2019. But seems like board believes that he will be unable to benefit Indian Cricket.

Reports also suggest that Sourav Ganguly was also harshly rebuked during a recent meeting of board officials in Delhi. The BCCI President was criticized for failing to do the right thing as president, and thus path of him becoming president was blocked.

The biggest faliure of Sourab Ganguly’s career as the BCCI president will also be his fallout with Virat Kohli. For the unversed, after T20 World Cup 2020, Kohli wanted to step down as the T20 captain to shed some burden but 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 a captain and neither was he happy of agreeing with the decision. Moreover, 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 as the BCCI president.

But now that his tenure seems to come to an end, tweeple are sharing hilarious memes and posts, celebrating Ganguly’s replacement. Checkout the Twitter reaction here:

Moreover, after such fallout with BCCI, Virat Kohli also stepped down from Test captaincy in January 2022. What seemed more shocking was that Ganguly feared that split captaincy might affect the team badly and hence having two captains would be a shame. But ever since Kohli stepped down from captaincy from all formats and Rohit Sharma became the regular captain, India has had eight captains in several tours.

After defeating New Zealand by 3-0 in the three-match ODI series, the Indian team will now play the three-match T20I series against the Black Caps. The first match of the T20 series between India and New Zealand will be played in Ranchi on Friday. Under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, the young team India has performed brilliantly so far.

The team would like to continue this performance going forward. At the same time, the command of New Zealand is in the hands of experienced all-rounder Mitchell Santner. However, Santner does not have much captaincy experience. In such a situation, the Indian team can take advantage of this.

Both the teams have come face to face eight times in India. Of these, Team India won five times, while New Zealand won three matches.

Then New Zealand defeated India in the T20 World Cup in Dubai. Since then, both the teams have faced each other five times in this format, out of which four matches have been won by India, while one match has ended in a tie.

This is the eighth bilateral T20 series between the two teams. India has won four of these series, while India has lost in three. India’s last defeat to New Zealand in T20 series was in 2018/19. Then the Kiwi team defeated India by 2–1 in the three-match T20 series.

Great captaincy from Hardik

India’s performance so far under Hardik’s captaincy has been impressive. He has captained Team India in eight T20 matches and India has won six matches out of these. Under his captaincy, the Indian team has not lost a single match so far. One match ended in a tie, while one match ended in no result. Under the captaincy of Hardik, the Indian team has won bilateral T20 series against Ireland, New Zealand and Sri Lanka. Looking at the Mission 2024 T20 World Cup, the Indian team would like to maintain the winning streak.
