The BCCI delegated Anil Kumble for the post of India mentor for a one-year time frame.Being pipped by Anil Kumble for boss mentor’s post, Shastri made a debate when he said that, Ganguly, part of the three-part powerful Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) was not present amid his meeting which he observed to be “rude”.
Not one to pull back punches, an incensed Ganguly today gave it back to Shastri scrutinizing the previous India all-rounder’s “reality” while giving a meeting while “holidaying in Bangkok”.

My recommendation to Ravi is that when the mentor of India is chosen and a standout amongst the most imperative employments, he ought to be before the board of trustees and not sit in Bangkok and give a presentation while being on an occasion,” Ganguly said.
Taking an a burrow at Shastri’s easygoing methodology, Ganguly said that the previous Team Director could have been available in individual “particularly when one of India’s most prominent cricketers ever represented two hours. I am harmed due to individual assaults.
“I read in two or three daily papers and disregarded it. I am to a great degree disheartened that he went on air to express his perspective. Uncommonly somebody who has been in each BCCI council throughout the previous 20 years. He has been in my position for selecting the mentor 10 years back. He knows about everything. I educated BCCI on June nineteenth and I have official sends. I will circle those sends once I get a freedom from BCCI,” Ganguly said
Ganguly then went onto add,”I don’t know whether he is not kidding or not genuine but rather I trust he was whether he needed a standout amongst the most vital occupations in the amusement. In any case, on the off chance that he is discussing regard then he ought to have been here too.”
“When you have a three-part advisory group and imperative individuals are included in the basic leadership then it is not just about Sourav Ganguly, so these individual comments have been extremely disheartening.”
On Shastri making remarks on open area against him, Ganguly said:”He ought to have demonstrated more development, particularly for somebody who has been in such advisory groups for over 10 years.
On Anil Kumble beginning his stretch as Indian mentor, Ganguly said: “I wish him all the good fortune. As I said he is the best on the planet. He is one of the champions of Indian cricket and he will take this group forward.”
Ganguly did not give an immediate response to the questions about it his ill will with Shastri being an open mystery in Indian cricket.
“From my side, I have never gone ahead to make any remarks to the media.”

“I had educated BCCI that there was a CAB Working Committee meeting that day. Being a president of CAB, I needed to seat the meeting. Additionally the notice for a Working Committee is constantly given 14 days ahead of time while this meeting was altered two days ahead of time. Ravi’s meeting was booked at 4:15 pm and I figure Ravi has got that got also. BCCI had sent him the time.
“Presently while meeting different hopefuls, it went past 5 pm and I left the meeting. At that point Mr (Ajay) Shirke (BCCI secretary) called me and said that others (Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and co-ordinator Sanjay Jagdale) are asking for in the event that they can proceed (with the meetings). I said “fine, how about we do that as it happens all over the place on the planet. That is precisely what happened and I feel remarks are exceptionally individual in nature.”
