Dalmiya cries foul

Sports Reporter

KOLKATA: The former BCCI President, Jagmohan Dalmiya, has said that dropping Sourav Ganguly from the Test team was unjust on the part of the selectors. "I do not know why he has been removed from the team. I think a little injustice has been meted out to him,'' he said reacting to the news of the former captain's sacking on Wednesday.

Mr. Dalmiya, who is the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal, said the way Ganguly played the two innings in the just-concluded Test against Sri Lanka he "should not have been dropped in the interests of the team.'' He felt the former captain had shown good form and played a responsible innings.

"I saw him play both the innings. He was playing for the team and looked to be in good form,'' he said.

PTI reports:

Meanwhile, the West Bengal's Municipal Affairs Minister, Ashok Bhattacharya, said Ganguly had been ``a victim of a deep conspiracy which should be opposed by all.''

``Some members of the Board of Control for Cricket in India have a grudge against Ganguly and they have been instrumental in deciding on his removal,'' Mr. Bhattacharya told reporters here.
