Like Mithali, I too was dropped during my peak says former skipper Sourav Ganguly

Indian women’s cricket team lost to England in the ICC World T20 semi-final by eight wickets. While the loss squashed India’s chances of lifting their maiden World T20 title, the omission of veteran cricketer Mithali Raj from the playing XI was the hot topic for discussion.
Former Indian Men’s team skipper Sourav Ganguly speaking at a press conference on the issue said that he too like Mithali was dropped at the peak of his career.
“It happens in life, welcome to the group,” Sourav said during a chat session at TimesLitFest Kolkata.Citing his example during the Greg Chappell era, Ganguly said, “Captains are asked to sit, so just do it. I have done it in Faisalabad. I didn’t play an ODI game for 15 months when I was probably the best performer in one-day cricket… It happens in life. The best in the world are at times shown the door,”
