Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Thursday threatened to stop playing for Bengal if some members of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) continue to create problems for his family members.
"Some CAB members are creating problems for my family and if these continue I may consider stopping to play for Bengal," Ganguly said at a press conference in Kolkata.
Ganguly denied any fall-out with former CAB and BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya, who is fighting for the CAB Presidentship this time.
"I don't have any problem with Dalmiya. My only concern is the problem to my family because of some CAB members," he said.
The elegant left hander, who could not find a place in the Champions Trophy probables, also reckoned that India's ODI captain MS Dhoni must have "felt fatigued" after playing non-stop cricket for the past year.
Ganguly described Dhoni's decision to skip the Sri Lanka tour later this month citing exhaustion as his "personal decision" which should be respected.
"It is absolutely upto him (Dhoni) how much he wants to play. It is his personal decision (to take rest) and we have to respect that. He must have felt fatigued after playing so much cricket for the past one year," he said.
