“Ganguly didn’t favour Rohit but he never liked Virat,” Chetan Sharma reveals

Everyone was shocked by the recently revealed Zee News sting operation involving chief selector Chetan Sharma, as the former player made some extremely serious allegations that could put Indian cricket in a precarious position.

Chetan Sharma asserted that there was a significant ego clash between former Indian captain Virat Kohli and former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly in the sensational sting operation, which is likely to alter the dynamics of Indian cricket moving forward.


“Virat Kohli felt he lost the captaincy because of BCCI President. There were 9 people in the selection committee video conference, Ganguly may have told him ‘think about it once’. I think Kohli didn’t hear it, there were 9 others there including myself and all other selectors, BCCI officials – Kohli might not have heard him.”

“Ganguly did not favor Rohit but he never liked Virat. You can put it in this way. The press conference ahead of the IND vs SA series where Virat Kohli revealed that he was told 1.30 hours before the declaration that he will be leaving the captaincy was unnecessary. He just wanted to get back at Sourav that’s why he did it.”
