Ganguly says "He was a shame to Indian Cricket"

Guess what Indian captian Ganguly said about BCCI President-elect Ranvir Singh ......

"It is a shame that we have had managers like him for India on long tours. He was a shame, a shame to Indian cricket"

he said that in reply to the question

Is it true that you refused to carry drinks onto the field early in your career?

I don't know where this story has come from. We had a manager on the trip to Australia in 1992, Mr. Ranbir Singh. He is probably the worst guy I have ever seen in my life. It is a shame that we have had managers like him for India on long tours. He was a shame, a shame to Indian cricket.

Luckily we have much better people now. That is the reason things like this don't happen against youngsters. I think he had some problem with Dalmiya (Jagmohan) and since I was from Bengal, he took it out on me.

Even schoolboys don't behave like this. I thought it was a shame to have him on the tour. For such long tours you need people of strong character and mind to look after the boys.

You can read full interview he gave to rediff 4 years back from this link

I would be very intrested to know what he feels about this now.
