KOLKATA - The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) Monday expressed shock at all the 10 Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises spurning former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly at the two-day players’ auction in Bangalore.
“This news has come as a shock to us. I think the crowd support which the Kolkata Knight Riders got in the last three editions of the IPL will be affected,” said CAB joint secretary Sujon Mukherjee.
Mukherjee said with Ganguly - the star local draw for KKR in the previous IPL games at the Eden Gardens - being not around, the crowd could lose interest in the side.
