BCCI President Sourav Ganguly defended the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, saying that Rohit Sharma has a great record as a captain.
He has captained 35-40 matches so far, of which only five-six have lost and the game is win-win. I am not worried about a loss or two. Rohit and coach Rahul Dravid will be reflecting on the performance of the team. Hopefully it will be rectified and Team India will do well in the coming days.
It is worth noting that after losing the Asia Cup in the first match of the home T20I series against Australia, questions have been raised on Rohit’s captaincy.
Sourav also made it clear that relying only on a particular player to win the T20I World Cup will not work. He said that all the players including Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav will have to perform well.
If my daughter played cricket she would have wanted a career like Jhulan -:
Sourav said about Jhulan Goswami, who is going to say goodbye to international cricket She is really a legend, truly a champion. If my daughter played cricket, I would have wanted her to have a career like Jhulan but unfortunately she does not play cricket.
Jhulan has left her mark in women’s cricket. He is a role model. Sourav also talked about Jhulan being honored by the BCCI.
Women’s IPL to be held in February -:
BCCI President informed that IPL for women cricketers will be held in February next year. Its format is being prepared. He said that the BCCI has a special focus on women’s cricket.
IPL format will be the same before next year -:
The format of IPL will be the same as before next year. The BCCI president has informed the state cricket associations about this. In the old format, all the teams played matches on their home ground as well as on the field of the opposing teams.
It is worth nothing that due to the Corona epidemic, IPL was organized in three places of UAE in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi in 2020. In 2021 it took place in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai. Since the corona epidemic is now under control, matches will be held at the home ground of all the teams and the ground of the opposing team as before.
