As you know no team had taken sourav ganguly in their team even the KKR but what i feel if laxman, dravid can be the part of IPL4 then why not sourav Ganguly ? Compare to this two player sourav ganguly is much better in every respect. Really the ipl teams have done big mistake not to take sourav in the team..What you think about it..?

i think we are loking at it the wrong way here. remember a few weeks ago,they listed some players based on index with sachin at number 18? true people got mad untill it got around that when it comes to batting skills,sachin wil be in the top 3 but this is pretty much a list for al rounders and wicket keepers. think of this the same way. as ganguly fan,i got the most irritated when the board forced him to quit from international cricket.it was unforgivable but look at IPL. it is a league run by business morons and swiz bank black money account owners. this league made players play for money rather than the passion of cricket. we should not take these idiots seriously.they made cricket business and good ridance dada is not a part of it anymore. he withstood more pressure in 3 season of IPL than this whole cricketing career. if he got picked,they might run another 3 season making ganguly as the maskot as wel as the joker and we definetely wont hear DADA IS LIKE A BROTHER TO ME craps. well we can always watch the videos and hope ganguly join some kinda cricket management and hopefuly the BCCI president to serve cricket. P.S.i wouldn't be surprised if ganguly was included in this world cup.he stil got a year or 2 to offer.too bad he retired.

Hi TheSids! I can understand your point but one thing. If you think it is team owner's money so they call the shots then I would like to say only one point. Let them call the teams some Royal challengers, super kings, Kings eleven, etc and not to call by city names. They spend money only because people watch, buy tickets, buy merchandising, become fans etc and owners get the profit from it. So people can call them Idiots etc and they can get upset over something too. People spend money for players not for these owners. As far as Ganguly case, KKR didn't have basic courtesy or PR. Bad handling of a decision. Happy Mylotting!

Hi Wismay, Of course, at end it is the people who watch and spend money no doubt... Even I am not going to watch the games at the theaters this time just because Kumble is not playing. Now coming to the point, we are to choose no doubt but who decides the choices from which to select? Definitely the ones who are the Team Managers and the Management... if they decide there is not going to be say - Kallis, so it is it. Kallis is not playing. (I mention Kallis as I need another one from my favorites - Ganguly or Kumble). Now once kallis is not been a part of the teams, only then I can chose whether to watch the game or not to watch... but if kallis is selected then I can watch the game. Da is the same case... if they are not selecting him, there is no way we can expect him to play. And these game owners hardly have any idea of the game... they are more into making money out of it nothing for the sport as it should have been.

I don't think IPL team has made any mistake for not choosing sourave ganguly at their team....It's time for sourave to take some rest and work with his dadagiri what I feel that Sourave Ganguly has made some mistake ....he should accept the offer of joining the team management

Its really a bad decision from the Shah Rukh because he knows very well that one of the time the whole India was supporting Ganguly for his famous Captaincy and even in the last IPL season he did well captaincy and even in his individual performance. But now KKR itself said NO for Ganguly. It hurts alot to see that one. Friend I really support you because those two players Laxman and Dravid didnt play even half of Gangulies play. So its very worst think by KKR. Ofcourse Shah Rukh is famous in acting but his and KKR decision about Ganguly is really a nasty thing.

Come on man, do not even compare these two. Both Dravid and Laxman are 'active' players. Ganguly has been 'inactive' for quite long now and moreover remember, he was booted by his own team owner the king khan.

well this is something which is going to happen more often i guess. the ipl is now becoming a money hub. players are sold as commodity and that is the end of cricket as a sport and dawn of cricket as a business. more and more the money will increase and we will see that players will be more interested in performing for their clubs to perform rather than the national team like what i can already see in football. there was time when the football world cup would mean everything for a player. he would do anything to perform to his best of abilities in the world cup. but now that cannot be seen. last world cup, Messi was a complete waste :( same will happen to cricket i guess and that is not good for the game.

He is not playing IPL4 and won't be playing any of the cricket as he has declared his retirement, he accepts in the interview that he was offered to be a mentor of KKR but didn't wanted to be in that place.

Many people are blaming that SRK is responsible for this, But this is totally wrong.Because IPL selection committee has taken this decision. And as per your discussion is considered, I am agreeing with you that this decision is totally wrong.Sourav Ganguly was and not only was he is still a good player, a real Bengal Tiger.But I don't know what went wrong with him that many negative decisions are coming for him and he is facing it. KKR will really be incomplete without sourav.many fans are not going to watch the IPL matches just because of this decission of cricket board.

Hi Siliguri, I think Da should just stop all this and take a sanyaas. Reason - I see that the media is making a mockery of his talent... they are using his love for cricket to their sales. They find it spicy news for so many cricket fans... Da is great and should respect his love for the game and himself come forward to say - "I dont want to play"... instead of teams and managers and others rejecting him

Don't compare any of the legend to other ok! By the way Ipl is bussiness so you can't force one to take or not. Ganguly is legend and his fans love him and that matters more.
