After India defeated South Africa by an innings and 202 runs to win the third Test in Ranchi, Virat Kohli said it was great to see Ganguly becoming BCCI president
Ranchi: India captain Virat Kohli on Tuesday (October 22) said he hasn’t spoken to BCCI president-elect Sourav Ganguly on Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
After India defeated South Africa by an innings and 202 runs to win the third Test in Ranchi, Kohli said it was great to see Ganguly becoming BCCI president.
Dhoni, who is on a sabbatical from international cricket, is not expected to play against Bangladesh in the upcoming T20I series.
He dropped in to meet the Indian team members and Kohli jokingly told journalists to come to the change room and say "hello" to the former skipper.
After being nominated as the BCCI's President-elect, Ganguly had said that he would like to speak to the selectors as well as Dhoni to know what they had in mind.
"I congratulated him (Ganguly). It's great that he has become BCCI president. But he's not spoken to me about that (MS) yet. He will get in touch with me when he has to. I am sure I will go and meet him when he tells me to," the Indian skipper said at the post-match press conference.
India completed a 3-0 clean sweep over South Africa in the Freedom Series (Gandhi-Mandela Trophy).
In fact, Ganguly on Monday said that he will speak to Kohli on October 24 as he believes that the decision to opt out of the Bangladesh T20I series, which starts November 3, rests with the Indian captain.
"I will meet him (Kohli) just like a BCCI president meets the Indian captain. It's upto him to decide if he wants rest," Ganguly told reporters.
