Sourav Ganguly is anguished at the present state of affairs of Indian cricket. The former India captain and Cricket Association of Bengal president has lashed out at the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of administrators for poor handling of administrative affairs in the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
In an email addressed to BCCI acting president CK Khanna and acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary, Ganguly has expressed “deep sense of fear as to where the Indian cricket is going”.
Insidesport.co is in possession of a copy of the email stating that the “way things have gone in the last couple of years, the authority of Indian cricket to the world and the love and belief of millions of fans is on the way down”.

Ganguly, who has sailed Indian cricket through the traumatic “match-fixing era” now thinks “the sport is in danger”.
Ganguly, head of BCCI’s technical committee, also described his experience “in the appointment of the coach (Ravi Shastri) as appalling.
