Sourav Ganguly was not fit for the T20
Former Kolkata Knight Riders coach John Buchanan says former India captain Sourav Ganguly was not fit for the T20. And that’s why Buchanan didn’t get along with Knight Riders captain Ganguly when he was the coach.
Sourav Ganguly ended his career as a batsman and captain in India’s jersey. Before that, however, he got the captaincy of Kolkata Knight Riders in the first edition of IPL in 2008. However, the controversy with coach Buchanan provides food for discussion. Due to which Buchanan was later dismissed.
Ganguly did not do well in Kolkata as a captain. The Kolkata Knight Riders, who finished 6th in the first edition, were at the bottom of the points in the next edition. Even with the bat, the time was not going well for Sourav Ganguly. That’s why coach Buchanan wants to change his captaincy.
John Buchanan, one of Australia’s coaches, lost his job before the 2010 season. Ganguly also left Kolkata for Pune Warriors. From there he announced the end of his IPL career. 1349 runs in 59 career IPL career, strike rate 106.61.
Even after all this time, Buchanan is still in the previous position, Ganguly was not suitable for T20. Buchanan, who has worked as a nun with teams from Australia, the West Indies, New Zealand and England, said in a recent interview with Star Sports: “My thinking at the time was that as a captain you have to be able to make quick decisions.”
‘And the game is short format so it has to be adjusted that way. And that’s why I used to talk to Sourav Ganguly like that. I can’t believe he’s suitable for this format, not specifically in the role of a captain. ‘
