Former BCCI President Ranbir Singh Mahendra on Saturday slammed Indian team manager Raj Singh Dungarpur for his remarks against Sourav Ganguly, and demanded his immediate "recall" from the tour of Pakistan.
"The Board President should intervene and Raj Singh Dungarpur should be recalled. He does not fit into the shoes of manager," Mahendra told a TV channel.
Throwing his weight behind the left-hander, Mahendra said that it is no less than playing with the career of an individual.
"I feel that to say something repeatedly and then to retract later just lowers the morale of a individual," he said.
"People are playing with his career and in overall they are playing with the team," he said.
Dungarpur had made a scathing attack on Sourav Ganguly by describing him as the "laziest and possibly the worst fielder" in the Indian team.
He however later sought to control the damage, saying the former captain was a "tremendous batsman" and his experience would help the team during the series against Pakistan.
