Sourav Ganguly might have been ruled out from the sole leadership position by Kolkata Knight Riders cricket manager John Buchanan, but his fellow mate Aakash Chopra looks up to the former Indian captain for his vast experience.
Chopra, who made his debut under Ganguly’s captaincy against New Zealand in Motera in October 2003, always looks up to the Bengal left hander’s vast experience.
“I will be looking up to Ganguly for his vast experience... You as a player, always follow your seniors... For myself, Ganguly and Ponting, the other senior player of the side, inspire me and I will be looking up to them,” Chopra, who joined the Knight Riders camp at Eden Gardens, told PTI.
Refusing to comment on Buchanan’s concept of “multiple captaincy”, Chopra however said he would be happy with whatever role assigned to him.
“As a senior player, I see myself as a mentor of for the juniors. I should ensure that the work ethics are in place for me to set the example. It’s a process, like I learnt from my seniors. Whatever role assigned to me, I will just fulfil that,” he added.
