Xtra Time Web Desk: Team India Head Coach Ravi Shastri and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly shared a bitter-sweet relationship over the years. The two stalwarts of Indian cricket always make headlines. In recent times both Shastri and Ganguly shared a mutual respect with each other courtesy their positions in Indian cricket.

Shastri recently brought back memories of  an infamous incident involving him and Ganguly. It was once reported that the current head coach of India didn’t allow Ganguly to board the team bus while he was late for it. However, Shastri cleared the air by adding that bus doesn’t wait for anybody who is late and by chance, it was Ganguly that day.

“If someone comes late for the bus, the bus will go, doesn’t matter who he is – it just happened to be Sourav that day. If someone comes late for the bus, the bus will go, doesn’t matter who he is – it just happened to be Sourav that day,” said Shastri in a recent interview.

Shastri went on to add that they shared a great bond. Both Ganguly and Shastri played for the same team (Tata Steel) together and it is just the media that loves all this kind of masala which even he enjoys.

“Absolutely not. I just had a chat with him when he was here (in England). I have watched a lot of his cricket. In fact, he played in the same team as I did (Tata Steel). I played for Tata steel as captain and he played under me. We go a long way. The media love these stories. They love this bhel puri & chat and will make nice masala out of it. I also enjoy these stories a lot,” Shastri added.
