Road Safety World Series: “Ganguly won’t allow me to play”

Former South African batter Herschelle Gibbs has said BCCI president Sourav Ganguly doesn’t want him playing in the Road Safety World Series because of his brush with the Pakistan-backed Kashmir Premier League (KPL).

Gibbs played in the KPL hosted in the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) region last August, despite opposition from the BCCI. He had accused the Indian board of threatening him with a ban from any cricket-related work in India.

On Sunday, when a fan asked Gibbs to join the Road Safety World Series on Sunday, which started on Saturday, he replied:

“Ganguly won’t allow me to play because I went to Kashmir league last year.”

@rbarman6 Ganguly won’t allow me to play because I went to Kashmir league last year 🤷‍♂️

Interestingly, Gibbs was removed from the World Legends XI team for a one-off charity match against Indian Legends XI — separate from the Road Safety World Series — that will be played on September 16 at the Eden Gardens after Ganguly faced fans’ ire on social media.

Later, Ganguly, who was supposed to lead the Indian team, himself pulled out because of “professional commitments and continuous work with cricket administration”.
