Spat between Sourav Ganguly and Ravi Shastri has turned ugly

It has been a war of words between Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly and Former director of Indian cricket Team Ravi Shastri.

It all started when Ravi Shastri pointed at Sourav’s non presence during an interview for the selection of Indian cricket coach.

VVS Laxman, Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar were members of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). Now when Shastri openly went to Media and said Sourav did not attend the interview, Sourav reacted saying Ravi Shastri lives in a fool’s paradise. He asked why Ravi Shastri was not present physically during the interview and preferred to take the interview on Skype, He also said why Ravi Shastri was holidaying in Bangkok?

Ravi Shastri clarified saying he took permission from BCCI to take skype interview.

The matter got little complicated when Anil Kumble’s name came from nowhere in the race of becoming India’s coach.

VVS Laxman  is 30% stakeholder of Kumble’s company, Tenvic Sports Education Private Limited and Kumble’s name was nowhere in the 21 short listed candidates for Indian Captain.

CAB's Vision 20-20 batting consultant is VVS Laxman  and Sourav Ganguly appointed him in 2014.

Laxman is paid a huge oney of 60 lakhs for working 30days for CAB.

Is this reason of disappointment of Ravi Shastri whose capability for the position is overlooked?
