Angry Buchanan lashes out at Ganguly

and that he had spoken to him about the captaincy changes soon after the first season of the Indian Premier League got over.

Buchanan also added insult to injury by adding, “Sourav, Dravid and Laxman have reached the twilight in T20 cricket.”

Ganguly had ridiculed the idea of having "rotating captains" for KKR team saying “tomorrow I can jump out and say we need four batting coaches, four John Buchanans and Shah Rukh Khan can say we need six Andy Bichels.”

Ganguly, who during his national captaincy days had a similar spat with then India coach Greg Chappell, said he was not consulted about this Buchanan’s new concept and he learnt about it from the press.

“I was not consulted on the captaincy issue before the final decision was made,” Sourav said earlier while talking to a news channel.

“I learnt about it from the press,” added the southpaw.

Buchanan, however, rubbished all the reports and said that Ganguly “was aware of all the captaincy changes”.

The KKR coach also added that the team owner and Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan had given him a “free-hand in all cricketing matters” catering to the team and that he had the right to make changes in the team’s pattern if need be.

The ‘rotating captains’ theory has earned a lot of criticism from the cricketing fraternity. South African coach Mickey Arthur said, “It has to be one leader always.”

“I favour the one-captain situation because everybody in the team is clear about who is in charge at all times,” said the Proteas coach who felt if a team had multiple captains it could leave players confused and disoriented, especially during a match.

“If you have more than one guy as leader, you don’t know whom to turn to,” he told reporters.
