IPL 2021: Former India captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said he is obsessed with Rishabh Pant even as he praised other India cricketers.

“All [among current cricketers] are fantastic players. As president of the BCCI, I shouldn’t pick one over the other. I enjoy Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s batting. I am obsessed with Rishabh Pant. I like Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. I like Shardul Thakur because he has got guts,” said Sourav Ganguly after he was asked to pick his favourite India cricketers on a Youtube chatshow by Classplus.
