Till I am around, everybody will be respected: Sourav

Thursday, 24 October 2019 | PTI | Mumbai

BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said the matter of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s future in international cricket will be addressed but vowed to accord the two-time World Cup winning captain respect during his tenure.

Ganguly said he doesn’t now what is in Dhoni’s mind but promised that a player of his stature will be given respect.

“It depends on him. Even when I was left out and when the entire world said he will never make it, I believed in myself and came back and played for four years,” Ganguly said.

“You know champions don’t finish quickly. I don’t know what’s in his mind and what he thinks about his career. So we will deal with that you know,” he added.

Dhoni has been on a sabbatical from international cricket since India’s semi-final exit in the ODI World Cup, leading to speculations about his future.

“He is one of the greats of the game and India is proud to have MS Dhoni over a period of time. If you even sit down and take a note of what he has done, you say, ‘Wow, MS Dhoni’,” Ganguly said.

Legends of the game have often had unceremonious exits and Ganguly knows it more than anyone else how it feels to fight speculations and criticism.

“Till I am around, everybody will be respected and that doesn’t change,” Ganguly said.
