I don’t know what will be the impact of the decision: Ganguly
In his entire statement, Ganguly said that it is as I said… I personally requested him (Kohli) not to give up the T20 captaincy. Obviously, he felt the workload. Which is fine, he has been a great cricketer, he has been very intense about his cricket. He has captained for a long time and these things keep happening. He further said in his statement that because I have captained for a long time; Therefore, I know. Also, they only wanted a white-ball captain. And hence this decision. I don’t know what is going to happen in future. But like I said, it’s a good team and it has some great players and I hope they change that.
