Well, Ravi Shastri had raised a lot of eyebrows after his tenure as the head coach of the Indian cricket team recently came to an end with India’s campaign in the T20 World Cup 2021. In an interview with Arnab Goswami, Ravi Shastri opened up about his equation with the President of BCCI, Sourav Ganguly, and also talked about the controversial rift between the both.

Shastri had rubbished all such rumors of the rift with Ganguly and said that they both share an equal amount of mutual respect for each other. He said:

“He (Sourav Ganguly) is my buddy. That is again nice Bhelpuri and Masala for the media. I have said that time and time again. Yes, he has his views. At times, there might be a clash. But listen I have known Sourav from a very young age.”

Revealing details about the rift that took place in 2016, Shastri said: “The reason I said it was because there was a meeting in Calcutta and I was on a Zoom call from outside. And the committee was Tendulkar, Laxman and Ganguly. So when my interview came up, Ganguly was missing. He was not in that interview. That’s the reason why I thought it was disrespectful and I have every right to say it,”

He added: “I am a guy who can let things go very easily. I am not the kind of guy who keeps anything inside and waits for the day when I can jump on that person or something,”
