Ravi Shastri Didn’t Include Sourav Ganguly While Congratulating IPL 2020 Organisers, Got Slammed

The whole world was brought to a standstill by the coronavirus pandemic and the Indian government was also forced to impose a lockdown in the month of March. The IPL 2020 which was supposed to start on March 29 was postponed too and there was no surety of it even taking place in this time of crisis. However, the BCCI headed by its President Sourav Ganguly was in no mood to let this year pass by without the IPL and they worked hard to organize it in UAE as the situation of the COVID-19 outbreak was not in control in India at that time.

The IPL 2020 got commenced on September 19 and it ended yesterday (Nov 10) with Mumbai Indians winning the trophy for the fifth time. MI defeated Delhi Capitals in the finals by five wickets to lift the IPL trophy. DC reached the finals of the tournament for the first time ever under the leadership of Shreyas Iyer but MI proved to be too good for them.

The former cricketers and other people from the cricket fraternity took to social media to congratulate BCCI for organizing the league in these difficult times. The head coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri also took to Twitter and praised the top officials of BCCI along with the medical staff for successfully organizing the IPL 2020 but he also did something which made him the target of the trollers. He didn’t include the name of Sourav Ganguly, the President of the BCCI, in his tweet, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

Ravi Shastri posted the photo of the IPL trophy and wrote, “Take a BOW @JayShah, Brijesh Patel, @hemangamin and the medical staff of the @BCCI for pulling off the impossible and making it a Dream @IPL #IPL2020 #IPLfinal”.

Check out his tweet:

Do you also feel that Ravi Shastri snubbed Sourav Ganguly intentionally as the netizens felt because Shastri was not recommended for the post of the Indian coach in 2016 by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) in which Dada was also a member? Let us know your views.
