Former India captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly’s phone, valued at 1.6 lakh, was stolen from his house. The veteran cricketer lodged a complaint at the Thakurpukur police station. Ganguly’s phone has access to several accounts and is also linked to his bank and the theft from him has left the 51-year-old worried. His house was reportedly undergoing painting when his phone was stolen, and police are likely to question the workers soon.
“I think my home phone was stolen. I last saw the phone around 11:30 am on January 19. Then I tried to find it but couldn’t find it. I am deeply worried about losing it. Because that phone has multiple contact numbers and access to personal information and accounts. I request to trace the phone or take appropriate action,” Ganguly wrote in his request as he asked the police to trace the phone at the earliest, as quoted by Hindustan Times Bangla.
It is a tournament that generates losses
Meanwhile, India will play Australia in the U19 World Cup final on Sunday. The tournament is played in South Africa. India has never hosted the Under-19 World Cup in the 15 editions so far. When asked about the same, Gangyly said that the U-19 World Cup is a loss-making tournament. However, Ganguly was optimistic that the tournament would be held in India soon.
“There is no particular reason for it (India will not host the U-19 World Cup). The other World Cups are played in India. What happens if this is played in places where the absolute World Cups are not held so frequently? It is a way to bring the game to other countries,” said Ganguly.
“You can say that it is a tournament with losses. Most World Cups in which senior men’s teams do not participate are non-profit. But that is not the reason why the U-19 World Cup has not been played in India. And I think it will be held in India,” he added.
