BCCI chief selector Chetan Sharma was heard making some shocking claims in a recent sting operation by Zee News. He claimed that Sourav Ganguly did not like Virat Kohli even though it was not the case of him favoring Rohit Sharma.

He added it was because of this ego clash that he spoke against the then BCCI chief at a controversial press conference ahead of India’s 2021-22 tour of South Africa.
