Chappell spoilt my career: Ganguly
Saturday 20 August 2011

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly lashed out at former India coach Greg Chappell after the Aussie was sacked as Australia's national talent manager.

Ganguly hailed Cricket Australia's decision to sack Chappell. "Now, people will know who was right and who was wrong (during their spat as captain and coach of the Indian team). He's such a big cricketer... a big name... it's very unfortunate," he told MiD DAY.

Ganguly blamed Chappell's 'backroom politics' for effectively ruining his career. "How many more times will such things (controversies) happen? He spoilt my career," said Ganguly. The Ganguly-Chappell controversy, perhaps the most infamous love-hate relationship in cricket history, was caused by a series of events in late 2005 and early 2006 that involved highly publicised infighting between them. It also ended Ganguly's captaincy stint.
