The LSG owner’s tirade against captain KL Rahul certainly crosses the line

The video clip has gone viral and most fans showed their solidarity with Rahul as no one-sided outcome can justify such a tantrum from the owner who is ultimately a non-technical person. The IPL ecosystem, where the owners and their business executives call the shots in the majority of franchises, has often been the source of several unconfirmed stories about how respected cricketers have often attracted the ire of those who fund the teams.

While not too many of these cricketers have spilled the beans at the receiving end, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly – who had managed two franchises in the latter stages of his career – was candid in an interview way back in 2012. He said that he captained a franchise is more difficult than India, Dada said as national captain, he did not have to answer anyone after the match day.

”But when I was captaining the IPL teams, I had to answer the owner before and after the match and I am seriously telling you that there is a huge pressure,” Ganguly had said. www. Rediff.com. ‘It is much easier to govern India: much, much easier. “I captained India for six years but I never had the chairman of the board or the chairman of selectors pick up the phone and tell me you should have done this at this time,” he said.

Well, the IPL has moved on and gotten bigger – but some things have never changed. The humbling experience of David Warner, an IPL giant and the talismanic captain who played a tremendous role in leading SRH to their only title so far in 2016, is still fresh in the memory.

The Australian was rather unceremoniously removed from the captaincy and the team, and worse, was blocked from social media by SRH – a move that Warner said in a recent interview had ‘hurt’ him. The silent coup that saw Rohit Sharma replaced by Hardik Pandya as Mumbai Indians captain is still making ripples.

However, it is one thing to make tough decisions in IPL boardrooms and quite another to scrutinize your captain under the public gaze. What do you say?
