It's been over half a year since he quit international cricket. After retiring from the highest level, Sourav Ganguly has had his hands full with a spree of off-the-field engagements ó commentary, analysis, dance show, functions, quizzes, and so on.
So just when India's most successful captain was beginning to settle down to a flourishing post-retirement life, he came up with an out-of-the-blue remark today that will surely raise quite a few eyebrows in the power corridors of the BCCI.
"Rules are not the same for everybody" ó Ganguly retorted, when asked if he was missing out on the action at the top level even as the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid are still carrying on.
The former Indian skipper didn't take any names, but his message was loud and clear, and gave the impression that he is still sore at being dealt a raw deal by the national selectors. "Had I been playing now, maybe I would have been performing as well. But I can't help it now," Ganguly opined, making it amply clear that he regrets the way he had to call it quits.
Ganguly called it quits in November 2008, and has set his eyes on playing at least another edition of the IPL Twenty20 carnival.
Meanwhile, just as the cricketing world was bracing up for another round of tussle between him and Jagmohan Dalmiya, he appeared to be trying to temper down things today. "Dalmiya is a legend in cricket administration, and he will be," Ganguly told a local TV channel here this evening, responding to questions on his plans of taking on Dalmiya in the coming days at the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).
"Look, Dalmiya is a well-wisher of Bengal cricket, and so am I," he said, adding: "I want to use all my experience in helping Bengal cricket the way I can. I want to contribute to Bengal cricket, and hopefully I am accepted."
