Sourav Ganguly wanted to issue show cause notice to Virat Kohli: Report


Team Udayavani, Jan 21, 2022, 10:10 AM IST

The BCCI president planned to send a show-cause notice to the then-India Test captain before the start of the series against South Africa in December, according to a big revelation in the entire Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli story.

Ahead of the Indian team’s departure for South Africa, Virat addressed the press-conference and made some strong comments. He claimed that no one from the board or the selection committee had asked him to reconsider his decision to give up captaincy in the T20 cricket, contradicting Ganguly, who had said that he personally requested the star batter to not leave the leadership role in the shortest format of the game

The 33-year-old also complained about the lack of communication between him and the board before removing him as ODI captain. These comments made by Kohli in front of the media didn’t go down well with the BCCI as it eventually showed both board and Ganguly in poor light. And it is understood that a convinced Ganguly, in what could have been an unprecedented move in the history of Indian cricket, had prepared a draft letter and wanted to send a show cause notice to Kohli for his outburst.

The 49-year-old had also discussed the matter with the BCCI members. However, the board eventually didn’t find it appropriate to issue a notice to the Test captain days before the Test series in the Rainbow nation. “And the board president was all for issuing a show cause notice to Kohli,” a source close to the development was quoted as saying by India Ahead News.
