After being ignored in the IPL auction, Sourav Ganguly breaks his silence on Saturday. He said that he never did politics and was always been transparent in what he did as a cricketer.

Indirectly taking a dig at the IPL snub during a programme, Ganguly said: “I never did politics. I would not have been here if I did politics. With my practical experiences I say whatever you do, you will not be at the top all the time.

So when you are at the top, be transparent. The rule is same for all, be it in politics or sport. As a leader you must tell the truth. They might not like it but it’s important to be clear with your colleagues,” Ganguly said. 

Having retired from international cricket, Ganguly continued playing in the IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders in the first three seasons but none of the 10 franchises showed any interest in the city’s favourite son who now finds his cricketing career come to an abrupt end.

Shah Rukh Khan, the Owner of Kolkata Knight Riders said that the decision to drop the former Indian captain Dada from the Kolkata Knight Riders team was taken with a very heavy heart.

Talking to reporters, King Khan said, he always wanted Ganguly to be part of Kolkata Knight Riders.

“Dada is like a younger brother to me and I want to win more games together,” Shah Rukh added.
