Sourav Ganguly, a former captain of the Indian cricket team and associated with ATK Mohun Bagan, has said that the Indian Super League (ISL), starting on Friday after the Indian Premier League (IPL), will inspire other sports to start. .
Ganguly said in the ISL’s Instagram Live session, ‘Cricket is over now. Now is the time for other sports, it is football time. I have always been associated with ISL. I am born in Kolkata so I enjoy it, and I have watched football from a very young age. Cricket came later. I have been associated with ATK since the beginning of ISL which is now ATK Mohun Bagan.
He said, ‘We are three-time winners, so the attachment is more because when you play and win, you feel more connected. I am ready for the season starting in Goa.
Ganguly said that the ISL will inspire other sports as well. He said, ‘I can say this, involving cricket because our domestic season is starting soon. We are about to debut in the new year. This will give us the security that if ISL can be conducted without any hassle, as the bio bubble is created then the rest of the things can also be held. We have seen how the impact of the bio-bubble was on the IPL. It will inspire other sports to start again. ‘
He said, ‘We have to give rise to ISL and it will happen. Give this game 10 years, give ISL 10 years and then talk after it. Nothing happens quickly in the world, especially in football. We have to give a little more time. ‘
