Throw out Shastri to save Team India, roars Bengal Tiger Ganguly

New Delhi, September 4: After losing the series in the fourth test, the Indian team has come under the hammer from former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly for the poor show in England. Ganguly slammed head coach Ravi Shastri and batting coach Sanjay Bangar and said that these two should be held accountable for India’s performances in overseas conditions.

Speaking on Shastri, Ganguly said that, the head coach should be held accountable along with Sanjay Bangar for the poor performance of the batting line up other than Kohli. Unless the team finds an answer to these questions, an overseas series win in the three countries looks impossible for India,” Ganguly said to a private news channel.

The Indian batting lineup failed to chase a moderate target of 245 in the fourth test and looked very much defensive.

"The Indian team has lost every big series since 2011 at overseas and hasn’t been making runs for a long time. When Kohli is at the crease it seems he is playing against totally different bowlers compared to other batsmen. I think the batting ability of the current players has gone down, Ganguly further added.
