Legend Remains Unsold, Humiliation For Indian Cricket Fans
Article By : Ramanujan M V
Tears roll down and anger been shown towards the entire IPL. “Ganguly” and “without dada” is trending on twitter from past two days and messages pouring from all the social networking sites including facebook. The man who made so many comebacks into Indian team is not bided by any of the IPL teams.
Sunday was one of the dark days for not only Dada fans. The day which made to feel let down for all dada fans. It’s for all the true cricket fans of India and across the world. SrK can concern about Pakistan players who didn’t fetch a Bid at last auctions but not for the great ganguly. The CEO of the KKR Venky Mysore knows nothing about cricket and he has not even played a first class match. He did the bidding for KKR and didn’t showed respect towards dada. It’s very disappointing and humiliating when an INDIAN who had given his heart and soul for Indian cricket been treated like this. Some of the aged players of other countries are getting picked up but not Dada. One of the reasons is certainly the involvement of foreign coaches in all the IPL teams.
The way people used to cheer for the maharaja of cricket not only in Eden gardens even in all of the grounds of India can tell you the way how Sourav has been supported and respected all over the country. The man who brought aggression and built the Indian cricket team remains unsold. The man who taught Indian cricket players to hate losing and start winning. How could this happen??
I can assure you that bidding not done according to the performance basis. The franchise needs a player to be respecting them always and nodding for their all decisions. He was the most efficient player for KKr in last three seasons. Even in the lights of brendon,gayle,hussy and hodge. Ganguly was the one to get most number of man of the matches and even win many matches for kolkatta knight riders. Even in the last season he was the third highest run getter and was excellent with his captaincy. He received a lot of criticism as teammates didn’t perform up to the mark in many of the matches. Even ishanth Sharma whom many think the future of Indian cricket lost KKR many matches and so does many domestic players. I don’t think any cricket player can get that team to the level ganguly did. He did his every bit for his team starting from motivating players till backing them to perform well. How can SRK forget the way of captaincy ganguly did while defending small totals against DD and DC in Eden gardens. He was ecstatic in the field by winning most number of karbonn kamaal catches. He got some brilliant run outs as well which even we can’t forget.
Not only he has added a great fan base to the team. Despite of loss of kkr in all three seasons it made most money than other team. It was not because of the charisma of SRK, it was due to the fragrance of DADA all over India. KKR got full crowd at Eden gardens and its merchandise sold out like a hot cake for three years. Even in business perspective getting dada was greatly helpful. And add to this if a team had got him, it would have got a large fan base. He would have played only IPL4 and get retired after that. The large fan base which dada carried in would have supported the team for which he played his last match in coming years as well.
In case SRK would have decided earlier that he is not going to bid for sourav he would have told it. They told that they’ll bid and did exactly opposite to what they said. Other teams would have strategized for getting dada if it was sure that KKr is not interested in ganguly. Otherwise a message from SRK to sourav saying the same would have also appreciated.
In the coming days we’ll surely witness the boycott of knight rider’s team and no longer will Eden gardens be full. The man with a billion support could have a got a respect from the franchisees but didn’t.
DADA is GOD and IPL (especially KKR) can’t hamper his status in the hearts of his fans. IPL will not remain as popular as it was earlier with dada.
Whatever dada remains in our hearts till our last minute of breathe. He was a Legend, a true leader and he will be worshipped by his fans forever.
WE love dada and respect him ….
Long live legend you have won our hearts from last 14 years and will remain an Icon and an inspirational figure for all of our lives.
