Players Don’t Play Only for Money Says Sourav Ganguly

The president of The Board of Control for Cricket in India BCCI Sourav Ganguly believes that cricketers don’t play just for money. The pressure of franchise cricket is increasing day by day. The other franchise leagues are not very bright but the exception is the Indian Premier League (IPL). It is often seen that cricketers play on the IPL stage excluding national team games.

The BCCI has sold the broadcasting rights of the IPL for the 2023-26 cycle for about five billion dollars. As a result, the IPL has become the second highest selling league in the world.

“Cricketers don’t just play for money,” Sourav said in an interview with an Indian media outlet after the sale of the broadcasting rights.

“Performance has nothing to do with money,” he said. Current cricketers get more money than Sunil Gavaskar, Anil Kumble or Rahul Dravid. Although they did not get much money, they were determined to perform. ”

“Cricketers don’t just play for money,” he added. They are also desperate to win international titles. ”

Sourav Ganguly also thinks that the international bilateral series will not clash with the IPL in any way. He said, “IPL is India’s domestic tournament. It has nothing to do with the bilateral series. Bilateral series help generate revenue for those countries. ”

Sourav Ganguly has hinted that the rumors of an increase in matches in the IPL are going to come true. The FTP will be made keeping in mind that the matches will increase in the later events. ”

The Zimbabwe cricket board has appointed former captain Dave Houghton as its new head coach for 2022.

Before the T20 World Cup qualifiers, such results have left Zimbabwe cricket thinking. A tough qualifier awaits Zimbabwe in July this year. So now the team wants to hand over the responsibility to the new head coach. On Tuesday (June 14), the country’s cricket board announced the selection of former captain Dave Houghton as its coach.

However, this is not the first time that Dave Houghton has coached Zimbabwe in the 1999 World Cup. In that World Cup, Zimbabwe lost to India and South Africa in the group stage and got into the Super Six. Dave Houghton’s coaching career is also quite rich. He has coached at county clubs such as Derbyshire and Middlesex.

Zimbabwe made their Test debut in 1992. Dave Houghton was the captain in that Test. In all, he captained Zimbabwe in 16 ODIs and four Tests. He played 63 Tests for Zimbabwe and scored 1484 runs. Dave Houghton has fielded 63 times in ODIs where he has collected 1530 runs.

Zimbabwe extended the contract with the current head coach of Zimbabwe, Lalchand Rajput, last March. However, Zimbabwe has changed its mind after the defeat against Afghanistan. Zimbabwe Cricket could remove Rajiput from the post of head coach and appoint him as technical director.

New Zealand coach Gary Stead said the team lost one of the best pacers in the middle of the series.

He is definitely a huge asset to us and we are patient so he can come back fully fit later this year. ”
