Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina have apologized to the BCCI for their on-field spat during the ongoing tri-series match against the West Indies.A debate on the lack of harmony in the Indian dressing room has been buzzing around since this incident was captured on cameras.
Sourav Ganguly,the former Indian captain spoke to NDTVSports in an exclusive chat during the Champions Trophy semifinal between India and Sri Lanka in Cardiff on June 20 where he revealed he hates being compared with Dhoni and as he feels players of different era played under different situations and conditions hence cannot be compared. He also said Dhoni is a Terrific Captain and has lot of cricket in him even now ! 🙂
No matter , how much we argue and claim Dhoni is better captain than dada aka Sourav Ganguly, one thing is undeniable, there is one thing which only dada could do and no one else –During the final match of the 2002 NatWest Trophy held in Lords,England after a stunning performance by team mates Yuvraj Singh and Md Kaif , Ganguly took off his shirt in public and waved it in the air to celebrate India’s win( It was a statement to the world of cricket) and was later condemned for jeopardizing Lords protocol and cricket. No matter what, Sourav Ganguly taught Team India to stare into the eyes of the opponent and do not go by names of the opponent or the place they were playing in. Today the confidence which we see in Team India’s each and every player is a gift of Sourav Ganguly to Indian Cricket,I firmly believe.
Difference between Dhoni and Ganguly,as per me- Dhoni has attitude and Dada had attitude problem and both rock 😀
What do you say friends ?
Shikhar Dhawan has created a buzz in Indian Cricket and has surely reminded Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli to perform or perish.Who knows they may have stopped quarreling with each other ! 😀 With fearless attitude on the pitch he looks a promising player and a probable replacement for non-performers of the team.

Raj Kundra on Saturday wished his Bollywood actress wife Shilpa Shetty a happy birthday and apologised for the disturbing developments in the past few days that saw the two being dragged into the IPL spot-fixing issue.He tweeted her aswell assuring truth will come out! 😀
Suddenly it reminded me of an old day TV advert on some washing powder which use to show a woman frustrated on her daily detergent/washing powder( dont remember exactly what it was ) and would say – “Meine Maangi Thi Dhulaai aur Tumne diya haathon mei jalan?? ” May be Shilpa ji remembers the ad !! 🙂
Former IPL Chariman , Lalit Modi , who has been a face of IPL’s success and the first controversy and who has now sheltered himself and family in the UK , wants BCCI chief, N Srinivasan, to resign from his post. This is after his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings franchise owner , Gurunath Meiyappan , was arrested for his alleged involvement in IPL betting and match-fixing scandals. Modi is of the view that CSK is Srinivasan’s Team and just the face is his son-in-law.
Well, in the past these two men have had rough times with each other, as per media and looks like Modi has got the right opportunity. Srinivasan on the other hand refuses to leave the BCCI throne and says he has been targeted.
