Netizens and Ganguly fans are seeing this as a potential chance to show his revenge. Some netizens even commented that Ganguly will remove Ravi and appoint another former Indian batsman in his position. Let's have a look at the incident that happened between Ganguly and Ravi Sastri

BCCI has formed a Cricket Advisory Committee(CAC) with likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman for the selection of the head coach for India. As part of this, the committee has called for interviews for candidates. However, Ravi Shastri attended the interview via Skype call as he was not in India. While Sachin and Laxman were ok with the interview, Ganguly opposed it severely. "The coach position is not easy. How can we appoint a person as Coach who can't even appear for the interview?", asked Ganguly.

He even made other members agree to appoint former spinner Anil Kumble as the head coach reportedly. Ravi Sastri was even vocal about Ganguly's decision. After Anil Kumble stepped down as Head Coach, CAC has appointed Ravi Sastri as the head coach. As Ravi Sastri is the only better option left with CAC among the applicants this issue was sorted. According to the reports, Ganguly might be the new BCCI President. This news led to a lot of memes and jokes about Ravi Sastri's future.
