Skipper's vantage

Friday, 14 February 2014 - 6:00am IST | Agency: DNA

While they belong to completely different eras, on Thursday former India skippers Sourav Ganguly and Kapil Dev found themselves batting together for a mobile company and a sports broadcasters. There was much banter as the cricketers recalled old memories - Prince of Kolkata recounted catching the 1983 World Cup league match between India and Zimbabwe on radio, the one in which Kapil struck an unbeaten 175 to rescue his team. "I remember the 1983 World Cup. I remember the day when you got those runs. I was hearing it on the radio on the top of my roof and I was flying the kite. I believe BBC was shut on that particular day because of a strike by the employees," said Ganguly. The mutual admiration club probably had no idea that the current Indian captain now finds himself embroiled in a serious controversy following reports that a Tamil Nadu cop had named him in a report on the cricket fixing investigation. "Well, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is at a disadvantage of not being able to play and see domestic matches. Now he can see the replays and highlights of all domestic highlights," said Sourav. At this point, it's really the last thing Dhoni would be looking forward to.
