    Daren Ganga on Gayle's Captaincy

    Rajarshi Gupta: Has Chris Gayle been able to live up to the legacy of Clive Lloyd and Vivian Richard?

    Daren Ganga: No way, maan. Gayle has been extremely selfish with team selection. Since he is from Jamaica, he picks up all his players from Jamaica.

    That has been the problem with West Indies cricket. We have a lot of nepotism and favouritism in the game and consequently progress has been hampered. What cricket in the Caribbean needs now is a strong leader, who can instil more passion in the boys.

    Gayle maybe a very good player and the records speak for him but I think he has failed as a leader. His man management skills have been poor and the team has suffered badly.
    The skipper has not really done enough to motivate our bunch.

    Daren Ganga says ESPN article a complete fabrication

    Following is the full text of a statement released today by Captain of the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Team Mr. Daren Ganga as it pertains to an article published by ESNPStar:



    I would like to make it abundantly clear that the interview published by ESPNStar.com today, Tuesday October 27th 2009, purportedly between me and one Rajarshi Gupta is a complete and utter fabrication.



    I participated in no such interview nor did I make comments which are attributed to me in the article. I do not know Mr. Gupta nor can I recall meeting anyone by that name whilst I was in India.



    The article leaves me baffled but I suspect that this vicious and mischievous attack may be designed to sow discord.



    I have provided these facts to the West Indies Players Association and have asked the President and CEO Mr. Dinanath Ramnarine to contact ESPNStar and demand a complete retraction and a public apology on my behalf. Should this not be forthcoming I will be forced to seek legal advice on the matter.

    Is there any chance anyone could put Daren Ganga's name in the thread title right?

    Guess with Ganga's name in the news so much the writer decided to get some publicity off him.

    You'd think if he's fabricated the whole thing he'd lose his job though.

    Apparently he says he'll produce tapes. Interesting. Not confirmed though.

    Ganga for West Indies captain!
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Ganga is the Mike Brearley of modern day WI cricket. But i think the WI can do without picking him again & letting Gayle continue to skipper.

    Interestingly, the link at the top of this page doesn't work, so it looks like ESPN has pulled the story....

    Also, Ganga is Trinidadian. When did he start speaking with a Jamaican accent?

    obviously cooked up and can't be difficult for them to get a guy to try and mimick Ganga's voice and say those stuff... It is quite common by two cent guys who wanna make their name as jounos to throw out such stuff. won't really be surprised if it was approved by ESPNStar with full knowledge that it was false juz to ensure few more hits to their site. Such is the world these days..
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    TBF, I think it's fairly safe to say that false reporting isn't a new phenomenon.

    Yeah I thought that was exceedingly odd. Almost like it was something hinting at its own fabrication.

    Exactly!

    I'm trying to remember when a Trini friend of mine said 'No way, maan'....
