Like Mithali Raj, I was also dropped at my peak: Sourav Ganguly
Reacting to Mithali Raj being dropped for Women’s World T20 semi-final, ex-India captain Sourav Ganguly said he was also dropped at his peak. “When I saw Mithali…being dropped…I said ‘Welcome to the group’,” he added. “Captains are asked to sit…so just do it…It happens in life. The best in the world are at times shown the door,” he further said.
Mithali, the ODI captain, had two back-to-back fifties against Pakistan and Ireland but was rested for the final league game against Australia due to a knee issue and also didn’t feature in India’s eight-wicket semifinal loss to England.
“No! I also have also sat in the dug out after captaining India. When I saw Mithali Raj being dropped, I said ‘Welcome to the group’,” Ganguly said at the Tollygunge Club on Sunday.
