Sourav Ganguly’s statement came for a league like IPL, said – it will be closed

Kolkata. Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Monday said players’ preference for T20 leagues over international cricket is not sustainable as only a few financially sound leagues will be able to survive in future. With the growing number of T20 leagues around the world, players are now preferring franchise cricket over playing for the country. After the Big Bash League, now the league is happening in UAE and South Africa. Apart from this, a league is also planned in America at the end of the year.

Ganguly said in a program of Sportstar that we keep talking about the leagues happening around the world.IPL is a completely different league. The Big Bash League is also doing well in Australia and similarly The Hundred has done well in the UK. The South African league is also doing well.He said that all these leagues are happening in countries where cricket is popular. I believe only a few leagues will survive in the next four to five years and I know which ones they will be.

The former BCCI president said that at the moment every player wants to join the new league but in the coming time they will know which one is important. In such a situation, playing for the country will be preferred over league cricket. Emphasizing the importance of cricket administration, he cited the example of Zimbabwe where cricket declined due to administrative reasons.

He said that I was the President of Bengal Cricket Association for five years and then the President of BCCI for three years. I have also represented India in ICC and have seen that the game is possible only with infrastructure and support. Ganguly said that I played the first World Cup in 1999. Zimbabwe could have beaten anyone at that time. At that time Zimbabwe Cricket did not have much money. India didn’t even have it. Where did the West Indies have the money during the time of Michael Holding, Andy Roberts or Joel Garner, he said. Good administration is very important for the players. Money is not an issue. Having a good relationship between the players and the administrators solves many problems.
