I don't think that only Gngulys bad performance is the reason for Knight rider's loss.. All the players are equally resposible...What do u think??

In cricket one man never be responsible for whole team loss.Its a 11 players game.Actually sometimes we hope more from some talented cricketer like saurav,sachin dravid etc.When they fail to score, we blame this players....

In last match kolkata knight riders won the match . It was a win against the stronger sideof punjab . What a sensational win because of the wonderful knock of saurav and gul. So who should get the credit for win. Whole eleven players or saurav ganguli. The whole team except ganguli flopped on the homeground.

Dear sourav I donot think only Ganguly is responsible for KKR ouster from IPL. Cricket is a game of 11 palayers . We can not blame only particular players' performance. Your views are quite correct & reasonable.Ishant is failure through out the game. Neither bating line nor bowling line performed well. pkc3000

cricket is a team game. Win and loss depends on all the players. Every one blames Ganguly for the KNIGHT RIDER's loss because we had a great faith in him and his team. As a captain he is responsible for the loss (or win). Its not that only the good things should go to the captain but also the bad things. Thats the duty and difficulty of being a responsible CAPTAIN. If you can take off the shirt when team wins, Then you should also be ready to accept all the critics when the team fails.

i think Ganguly has'nt played that badly..the last match against punjab was thrilling..cricket like any other is a team work..everyone is given equal opportunity..success/failure depends much on how much enery the team creates and everyone is responsible for anything at the end of the day.

well to be honest you cannot blame anyone cricket player for the loss of your team. cricket is team work, but yes your captain has to drive that team and i think he did a real bad job in doing it.

I do not think only he was responsible. its the case that mainly none was able to perform at the correct time. also the thing is that as he was the senior most and captain, he has to take responsibility. some ways KKR played very bad in some matches.

well 1 player is never responsible and i think that is very much true when it is about cricket. he was good in playing the matches but i think he lacked the support from the other end. in this form the opening is very important and i think he had to come down because of the in experienced side he had. and then he got hopeless choices to open. akash chopra was there for some reason even god does not know. then haffiz had the same thing. so what can he alone do. salman butt also played 1 or 2 matches only for a goos start.

have you seen last night's match of knight riders against kings xi? i think that macth will surely clear your doubts.

Cricket team has eleven players per sidd and each player has equal responsibility for win or loss. But as a captain he has much responsibility than any other players. Coach and captain has the equal blame for debacle. They are the ones who are supposed to choose the right combination of players. It is their job to assign the roles to different players. They failed to do so.even you have good players in your side but without good leadership everything is waste.

Ganguly has always been the whipping boy.When he scores runs and takes wickets its because the opposition is weak.When he succeeds and everyone else fails,the wise men have nothing to say.When the team loses its because he is a bad captain,when they win its beacuse it was a team effort.Give the guy a break.

Saurav, this is what I have always say. Cricket is 11 players. One person fail where is the other 10 players. They mean to tell me that everyone is having a bad day. Knight Rider's players maybe are not hungry enough.
