“Dada’s credibility is undeniable,” Delhi Capitals owner comes out in support of Sourav Ganguly

Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly are at loggerheads after Kohli's removal as ODI captain

Delhi Capitals owner Parth Jindal has come out in support of the former Indian captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly whose statement was contradicted by the Indian test captain Virat Kohli yesterday.

Jindal, in his tweet, made it very clear that the credibility of Sourav Ganguly can’t be questioned and if anyone is saying anything against Ganguly, then he should remember what Ganguly has done for Indian cricket over the years.

According to Parth Jindal, Sourav Ganguly is not the kind of personality who will make any sort of compromise when it comes to the betterment of Indian cricket and it’s important for the sake of Indian cricket right now that the recent controversy is resolved as soon as possible.


What must be noted is that Ganguly and Parth Jindal have been associated with each other for Delhi Capitals in the past. While Jindal is the co-owner of the franchise, Ganguly was the mentor at Delhi Capitals back in IPL 2019. Even after leaving the post of mentor, Ganguly was associated with Jindal’s company JSW in some capacity.

Jindal is the only owner out of the owners of 8 IPL franchises so far who has had a say on the recent controversy and he has thrown his weight completely behind the BCCI president. No IPL owners, so far, has chosen to speak on the matter, which is anyway completely out of their jurisdiction.

Delhi Capitals owner has always been vocal about the matters related to Indian cricket

Parth Jindal is someone who has always been vocal and outspoken on issues related to Indian cricket. When Shreyas Iyer was not picked in the Indian squad for the recent T20 World Cup, Jindal had expressed his unhappiness over it.


However, the interesting bit of it was that Delhi Capitals, under the co-ownership of Jindal, had itself sacked Iyer from captaincy in favor of Rishabh Pant, who was given the captaincy because of the injury to Iyer in the first place and then was retained even when Iyer returned.

The tweet of Delhi Capitals owner was not received well by the fans of Virat Kohli on twitter as they advised him to stick to the matters of Delhi Capitals. However, it’s not Jindal alone who has supported BCCI and Ganguly in the recent controversy, many other stalwarts of Indian cricket including Kapil Dev have already lent their support to BCCI.

It remains to be seen how the relationship between Kohli and BCCI pan out in the upcoming months because Kohli still holds the position of the captain of Indian test team.



I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
