We are looking to give him an opportunity:  Ganguly  on  Kumar Kushagra

Further in the press conference, Sourav Ganguly also spoke about young Indian uncapped star Kumar Kushagra, who was bought for INR 7.2 crore. The 19-year-old from Jharkhand hasn't featured in IPL 2024 and Ganguly revealed that the team is planning to give him a chance.

The former BCCI president gave the example of another uncapped star Sameer Rizvi, who plays for the Chennai Super Kings, as a template to play  Kushagra. Ganguly said,  "We are looking to give him an opportunity. Chennai have created a slot for Rizvi, we are also trying to do the same with Kumar Kushagra."
