Ravi Shastri has been accused of spreading corona in the Indian team due to his book launch event.
Sourav Ganguly, the former captain of the Indian team and the current BCCI President, supported the sending of Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the T20 World Cup as a mentor with the team. Sourav Ganguly believes that the decision to keep Dhoni with the team has been taken only after much thought and deliberation.Also Read – Not IPL, Not IPL, Fifth Test canceled due to Indian players refusing to play: Sourav Ganguly Fifth Test canceled due to reason: Sourav Ganguly

Recalling an anecdote in the past, Sourav Ganguly said, “After much discussion, we have decided to keep him together for the World Cup. We haven’t won any ICC trophy since 2013. Remember, Steve Waugh also played the same role in the Ashes when the Australian team managed to end the series in a 2-2 draw on the tour of England. Being with such a big player in a big tournament proves to be very helpful. Also Read – Ravi Shastri can catch India flight on Wednesday, this condition has to be fulfilled
Sourav Ganguly reacted even after the cancellation of the fifth match after Ravi Shastri launched the book on the tour of England and then came under the grip of Corona virus. On the question of action against Shastri, Dada said, “It is not going to happen at all. How long can you keep a person imprisoned in a hotel room? Can you keep yourself hostage in the house all the time? You cannot live a life where you have to go from your hotel to the ground and from the ground to the hotel. Everyone is human. It is not possible for anyone.”
