Ganguly has to swallow his pride

Some clarity emerges on the dethroning of Ganguly. Buchanan wins round one against Ganguly: Cricket Next . However, if Buchanan is considering Laxmi Ratan Shukla as Captain, Ganguly will have to swallow his pride.
Ganguly will remain as Kolkata's icon player but will not be their captain, or only captain.

The captaincy will go first to Brendon McCullum, then to Chris Gayle for a couple of games and may be even to Ganguly for a bit and even perhaps to the little known all-rounder Laxmi Ratan Shukla.

I thought it was going to be McCullum only for the duration of the IPL?

RS,

I think the other names including Ganguly is for appeasing Kolkatta.

SEEMS TO HAVE SWALLOWED ALREADY. MAY BE HE MAY MAKE A STATEMENT WITH HIS BAT DURING THE IPL AND IN WORDS AFTER IT IS OVER.

Ganguly will not play next year. He will anounce his retirement from all forms of cricket.
