On Tuesday, former India skipper and former Board of Control for Cricket in India President Sourav Ganguly hoped that young wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant would soon recover from the injuries he sustained in his car crash and “be back on the path.” The India wicketkeeper-batter met with a horrifying accident when he lost control of his car while driving on NH-58 on Friday. He is currently admitted at Max Dehradun with multiple head, back, knee and ankle injuries.

The former BCCI president, who is set to become Delhi Capitals’ (DC’s) Director of Cricket, said Qatar had done a remarkable job hosting the FIFA World Cup. “You know I follow football closely and understand it a little bit. I may have played cricket, but I understand this sport a bit. I think this is the best football World Cup match I’ve seen in my life,” Ganguly said.

“Mbappe is absolute gold, and he may not have slept since that World Cup final because very rarely you’ll score four goals in a World Cup and still be on the losing side, and that’s what happened to him. He won a World Cup at 19 and another word cup finale at 23, so the world is at his feet,” Ganguly opined.

Argentine superstar Lionel Messi finally won the trophy he yearned for most, and Ganguly feels it was “befitting” that the Argentine maestro won the cup in his last attempt. “It’s befitting for Messi in his final World Cup. At age 35, he finishes his World Cup career with a trophy which also shows that however good you’re and however great you’re, you still have to fight for years to win a World Cup. It took him sixteen years to win a World Cup for Argentina, and I think it was phenomenal to watch the pace which can’t be realised on TV,” he concluded.
