Kohli’s knock at Hobart was unbelievable: Ganguly
“Just unbelieveable. Virat Kohli’s superlative knock and based on that India’s unbelieveable victory at Hobart had raised a hope but finally India haven’t qualified for the tri-series finals,” Ganguly wrote.
“Although we are all pretty upset about it, deep inside we need to agree that the two best teams on form have qualified for the final showdown in the tournament,” he added.
Ganguly expressed concern that Indian cricket is heading towards a downfall and it is necessary that the national selectors and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) take stock of the situation.
“Since the World Cup victory Indian cricket’s fortunes have turned around massively and for me Indian cricket is at the crossroads and the selectors have a very important role to play from now on.
Indians have lost eight test matches in a row, a record which has not been achieved by Indian cricket in the near past and the selectors can’t let this go unnoticed,” Ganguly wrote in his column for Deccan Chronicle.
“India has been exposed in all departments in the eight test matches in England and Australia. It’s time that the selectors take stock of it. They will make a massive mistake if they let this go under the table and by trying to do so put the onus on the new selection committee which will take charge in September,” he said.
