A day after Sreesanth and two other Royals players — Ankeet Chauhan and Ajit Chandila — were arrested for spot fixing, Ganguly told a television channel: “I really feel bad for Rahul. It’s his sheer bad luck. First he had Greg Chappell (as India coach) when he led India. Now he has to contend with Sreesanth. These two people have created confusion.”
Chappell, Ganguly’s bete noire, was the coach of the India team when Dravid succeeded Ganguly. Chappell continued as coach for the most part of Dravid’s captaincy.
Ganguly, however, showered praise on the way Dravid has led the Royals in the ongoing edition of the cash-rich league. “Rajasthan Royals is not a great team. But Rahul has really done wonders as a captain in this IPL. I have not seen him do so well as captain in Tests and one-dayers,” said Ganguly about his former India teammate.
