Sourav Ganguly In Trolls For Mentioning Jay Shah While Appreciating Indian Women’s Team’s Spirit

Ganguly tweeted to console the Indian women cricketers for their defeat to Australia in the Women’s T20 World Cup Final mentioning the name of BCCI and Jay Shah only. 

India-Australia match in Women’s T20 World Cup Final was a crucial game where Indian women’s cricket team lost the chance of creating history by winning the trophy. Harmanpreet Kaur-led Indian team was defeated by 85 runs of the Australian team and the great performance of Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma, Veda Krishnamurthy, Poonam Yadav, and other players in this match is worth mentioning. However, Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI  President never mention any of them while consoling them for their defeat after such a brilliant performance; rather he made everyone confused by tagging the BCCI Secretary, Jay Shah.

The whole country feels proud of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team’s caliber to fight for the Women’s T20 Final Winner’s Trophy against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in front of 86,174 people on March 8, 2020. Unfortunately, their defeat by Australia by 85 runs has saddened the Indian mass but the entire nation and cricketing fraternity have actively appreciated the team spirit and women cricketers’ performance while going into the finals. 

While the whole nation went on praising the Harmanpreet Kaur-led Indian team, Sourav Ganguly’s Twitter post has confused Indians as he has only put the name of BCCI Secretary who had nothing to do with that match. His activity has led him to be in troll on Twitter where his follower has wittily asked him what exactly Jay Shah’s contribution was in this match that he has been tagged in Ganguly’s post. 

The iconic Bengali cricketer who has contributed a lot to the Indian Cricket Team now has to face several questions for this blunder. His post is also getting criticized by many, mentioning that this legend is bowing down to political pressure. 

Ganguly’s Twitter post as an attempt to congratulate the Indian women’s cricket team has confused Indians. On the other hand, he has to face such allegation as being pressurized by the political hierarchy to make such a post. 

Ganguly’s funny post has wondered his followers and most of them are accusing him to be in support of BJP which is further ascertained by his previous action to make her daughter delete her Twitter comment regarding CAA, NPR, and NRC in December 2019. While Her daughter Sana commented that CAA, NPR, and NRC are backed up by the ‘fascist’s regime’, Ganguly insisted on removing those comments and put up a tweet requesting Indian people to keep her out of politics. The actual reason behind Sourav Ganguly’s post is yet to be known but his neutral personality and great image have been hampered by his act which also disappoints his followers.
