Recenly we read, heard and saw during the sad episode of Mumbai blast which were connected by "emails". I am a cricket blogger so please don't expect me to write about Mumbai issue. Lets just regret what happened..
But what I have here for you is another email , and there is nothing wrong in discussing about it.
The story :- At 1515hrs India time, an email from firstname.lastname@example.org (former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly's id) was sent to Sanjoy87@hotmail.com (Sourav Ganguly's brother Snehashish Ganguly's id). What that email is still not available on Internet but its content are very clear. Sourav feels Jagmohan Dalmiya didn't do enough when he was dropped from Indian cricket team after the Zimbabwe tour, and now wants to change his party by supporting Jagmohan Dalmiya's opponent in the coming election of CAB - The Cricket Association of Bengal.
Sourav also feels it was Dalmiya's camp who leaked that controversial email to media people from Indian coach Greg Chappell to BCCI, and ultimately Ganguly had to stay away from the team that he himself once built.
The flashback :- 25th September, 2005. Newly appointed Indian cricket team's coach Greg Chappell sends an email to BCCI, describing Indian captain Sourav Ganguly as “deceit and rumour-mongering” and incapable of playing for the national team. This was prompted by a test match against Zimbabwe, due for a start on 13th of September last year. The trouble was Indian cricket team had to choose three between VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif and of course, captain Sourav Ganguly.
Ganguly asked his coach - Greg Chappell about his opinion and as a blurt that Chappell was, said "I think you should sit out". The trouble started, and ended with the removal of Ganguly from captain ship, who then declared himself unfit for the Challenger trophy in India in 20 days from then.
The latest on 21st July, 2006 -
‘‘People who leak emails and sacrifice players’ careers should be heavily punished. There are people in CAB who are playing with players’ careers to suit them. They should not be left scot-free as it takes years of hard work to reach a certain level in sport,” says Ganguly in his email and expresses his support for Kolkata Police Commissioner Prasun Mukherjee, who is contesting the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) elections next week against Dalmiya.
from the inside, some new agency has reported about a one senior BCCI official, who says : ‘‘The coach doesn’t want him, the team-members are happy without him and the selectors aren’t convinced either. That apart, his performances don’t speak for him either. What else is to be considered? The last time we took a call to give him one last opportunity was when he was sent to Pakistan. Now, there’s no looking back. His career is over as far as playing for India is concerned.’’
How do you think this story will end..??
