As the Kolkata Knight Riders look to better its run in IPL season 2, the Sourav Ganguly-John Buchanan spat is reaching new heights with reports suggesting that Ganguly has been slashed off the captaincy of the IPL team and the responsibility has been shouldered to New Zealand's Brendon McCullum instead for the team's first match on April 19.

There is no official word from the Knight Riders management yet.

Earlier, a lot of controversy had been created regarding John Buchanan’s ‘multiple-captains theory’.

The concept seemed more of conspiracy to remove Ganguly from the captaincy of KKR.

However, later, team owner Shah Rukh Khan dismissed the possibility of having multiple captains and said that “Dada will always remain our (KKR’s) main man”.
