Rahul Dravid told Greg Chappell he can't drop Sourav Ganguly: Amitabh Choudhary
Dhritiman Ray,TNN | Aug 8, 2015, 09.40 AM IST

RANCHI: It has been a decade since the spat between the then India skipper Sourav Ganguly and coach Greg Chappell broke out in Zimbabwe. Somebody who followed the incident from close quarters revealed some details for the first time in a public forum, on Friday.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) joint secretary Amitabh Choudhary, who was the team manager on that troubled tour, described the first reactions of Ganguly.

"It happened at a training session two days before the first Test (in Bulawayo). The skipper left training midway and returned to the empty dressing room. He came back and threw himself on to a chair, visibly disgusted. I asked him what happened. Pointing at Chappell, who was on the ground overseeing the net session, Ganguly said, 'That guy's crazy.' Then he told what Chappell had just said," Choudhary said in his speech at Xavier Institute of Social Service.

What Chappell told Ganguly that day is history. "I instantly understood what had just happened was explosive," the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) president added. "So after pacifying Ganguly, I had a chat with his deputy Rahul Dravid. Then we walked up to the coach to tell him that dropping the skipper was beyond his jurisdiction."

Ganguly was dropped after that series and Dravid was named captain. Chappell had an unquiet stint as the India coach, which ended with Team India's early exit from the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies.

CP, you are stuck on Ganguly. It is a worrying obsession that we have followed for a decade now. Go get a doctor or eat some gobi ka parantha. Otherwise you are such a charming fellow!
