This is not the cricketer the world knew of: Sourav Ganguly on Imran Khan's Speech



Ever since Pakistan's PM Imran Khan's speech at the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Imran Khan has been under the fire and has been hugely criticized , and of late, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly on Thursday termed Khan’s address as “rubbish” and said that this is not the cricketer the world knew of.

Former Skipper Ganguly made this comment while replying to Former Opener Sehwag’s tweet in which he had shared a video of Imran Khan. Virender Sehwag shared the video on Twitter in which American anchors can be seen blasting the cricketer-turned-Prime Minister.

Virender Sehwag shared the video and captioned the tweet as “You sound like a welder from the Bronx, says the anchor. After the pathetic speech in the UN a few days ago, this man seems to be inventing new ways to humiliate himself”.



‘I am shocked,’ tweets Ganguly


Replying to his teammate Sehwag’s tweet this is what “Dada” Ganguly said, “Viru…I see this and I am shocked…a speech which is unheard of…a world which needs peace, Pakistan as a country needs it the most…and the leader speaks such rubbish…not the Imran Khan the cricketer world knew…speech in UN was poor,”
On Wednesday, Indian cricketers including pacer Mohammad Shami, Harbhajan Singh, Irfan Pathan slammed Imran Khan for his speech at the UNGA and said his words did not reflect sportsmanship and was not in the right spirit whatsoever.
