Sourav Ganguly supports MS Dhoni, says his captaincy must be respected
When Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was brutally abused and disrespected on the social media, Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly backed up Dhoni saying that the Captain should be given respect as he has excellent records in ODI’s and he has to be given more time to think whether he wants to step down as the captain or not.
“He (Dhoni) has said it in the heat of the moment and it’s not right. He was upset after the defeat. Leave it there. Everybody has to sit together and think. Don’t put MS Dhoni down, he has a terrific record in ODIs. Give respect to him”
Ganguly said this stating the Dhoni’s interview after the match.
On being asked whether Dhoni should continue as captain or not, Sourav said “It’s not an individual decision. Let’s cool down, let the series be finished. Such a decision can’t be taken overnight. Whoever has to take a decision, has to take long-term aspect in mind. There is BCCI President, Secretary General and office bearers. He should be given all the time in the world. Whether he wants to continue and has the power to lift the side…”
