Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif has opened up on the Virat Kohli-Sourav Ganguly saga. Writing a column for India.com, he added that Kohli’s press conference was like an explosive and the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly got sucked into it as well.

However, it started when Ganguly publicly said that he had urged Kohli not to resign from the T20 captaincy, but Kohli didn’t listen. On the other hand, when Kohli was asked about this, he denied it and stated that he got to know about the ODI captaincy change just sometimes ago before the team announcement which created a lot of drama.

“Lately, Indian cricket has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Indian captain Virat Kohli’s press conference before leaving for South Africa created a storm and Sourav Ganguly too got dragged into it,” Mohammad Kaif wrote in his column for India.com.

He further added: “Thankfully for Indian cricket, they had a trouble-shooter in place. We know him by the name of Rahul Dravid, the new Head Coach of the Indian cricket team. Having played with and under Rahul bhai, I can safely tell you that if there was ever a man to handle the ship of the Indian team, it is him.”

He again added that Rahul Dravid is the best man to handle the team at the moment as team faces uncertainty off the field.

“I say this with quiet confidence as Dravid himself has seen a lot of ups and downs in his times as a former India cricketer and captain. He was leading India when Greg Chappell was around as a coach. He was captain of Rajasthan Royals when the spot-fixing and match-fixing controversy happened in 2013. As captain these phases tested him but he came out on top. His communication skills, patience, ability to handle egos and above all his selflessness worked in his favour,” Mohammad Kaif concluded.
