Ganguly finds Sehwag's remark on losing head coach job foolish
Kolkata: Former Indian Cricket team skipper Sourav Ganguly described Virender Sehwag's recent remark on missing out on becoming the head coach of team India as 'foolish'.
Recently, Sehwag sparked a controversy by claiming that he lost out the team India head coach job to Ravi Shastri due to lack of patronage in Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
On being asked to comment over Sehwag's statement, Ganguly said, "I have got nothing to say. Sehwag spoke foolishly," said Ganguly, who is one of the three-members Cricket Advisory Committee that elected Ravi Shastri as head coach.
Ganguly, however, did not speak any further over the issue.
Ganguly, who also happens to be the President of Cricket Association of Bengal, sounded confident of a full house at the Eden Gardens when India and Australia will lock horns in the second One-Day International (ODI) on September 21 despite the speculations that the onset of Durga Puja season could be a dampener.
"All complimentary tickets of 25,000 are gone. We have also sold about 15,000 tickets out of the available 30,000. We still have five days left," Ganguly said.
It is worth mentioning that the Durga Puja season is beginning with Mahalaya on September 20.
