The issue of the appointment of chief coach for national cricket team didn’t go down well with some. And, interestingly, the talks of the issue still continue to linger around in the Indian cricket world.

In what appears as not very happy about mood, former India opener Virender Sehwag recently made various revelations on television around why he couldn’t become the coach of the national team.

Appearing on a news channel, India TV, the former opener has claimed that he was misled by a section of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) into applying for the post, which he was never interested in.

He also went on to claim that lack of “setting” in BCCI was one of the factors why he couldn’t become the coach.

Dekhiye main coach isliye nahi ban paaya kyonki jo bhi coach chun rahe the unse mera koi setting nahin tha. (Look I couldn’t become the coach because I didn’t have any setting with those who were in power of appointing the coach).”

It is this claim which reportedly made former India captain Sourav Ganguly say that Sehwag “spoke foolishly”.



“I’ve got nothing to say. Sehwag spoke foolishly (bokar moton boleche) ,” Ganguly said according to PTI.

Ganguly is one of three members of the Cricket Advisory Committee that picked Ravi Shastri ahead of Sehwag and others as head coach.

However, Ganguly, later, took to Twitter and denied that he had said anything of that sort. He tweeted:
