Dilip Doshi Praises Sourav Ganguly For Bringing Up New Era In Cricket World

Dilip Doshi, the former left-arm spinner of the Indian cricket team, praised Sourav Ganguly, the president of BCCI and Ex-Captain of the Indian cricket team, for demolishing the factionalism and regionalism from Indian cricket.

PTI quotes Doshi as saying, “I must tell during our days you could have played for India only if you are a North Indian from North India or Maharashtrian from Mumbai or from South. One can never think of a cricketer playing in the Indian team from Eastern states like Bihar”.

Doshi, the 71-year-old former spinner of India, was speaking during the book launch of ‘Wizards – The Story of Indian Spin Bowling,’ which is authored by Anindya Dutta. He felt that Sourav Ganguly was the only person after Tiger Pataudi who brought oneness, togetherness and Indian feeling in the cricket team.

Doshi added, “Nowadays very few spinners are making an effort to spin the ball. There are plenty of slow bowlers but not orthodox spinners.”

According to Doshi, the spinners should modify or change the style of spinning. He concluded by saying, “Now a days we see spinners open the bowling in shorter versions which according to me is foolish.”
