Is it a crown of thorns at the moment? “I don’t think so,” said Ganguly.
“Every job comes with challenges. I don’t think it is a crown of thorns, whether you open in a Test match against the best fast bowling attack in the world or you are the BCCI president or the association president. Every job comes with challenges. I think BCCI is in a great position in terms of the way the game goes around in the country. I am sure he will take the team forward.”
He added”We will have to wait and see what comes out with the judgement. Hopefully, the board can find a way to carry the good work done for such a long time. Whatever happens (judgement) we will have to deal with it. The board is in good hands, the players (both international and first class) are looked after well and you have a big tournament like the IPL. Every job in the world has positives and negatives.”
