Mumbai: Former Indian coach and opening batsman Anshuman Gaekwad has come down heavily on several Indian players, including captain Saurav Ganguly, accusing them of being unco-operative and having a lackadaisical attitude. In an interview to a website Gaekwad said while Ganguly was receptive to ideas when he was a "mere" player, he "found his attitude changed after he became captain". "He became extremely stubborn," Gaekwad said. He also criticised the manager of the Indian World Cup squad Brijesh Patel, saying appointing him was the "biggest blunder that I made". Speaking about Patel, Gaekwad said the former used to "interfere in my job, when Bobby Simpson was there as the consultant along with me as the coach". "He also used to interfere by advising players, especially those from Karnataka," Gaekwad alleged. Gaekwad further said when the then captain Azharuddin had made it mandatory to speak in English or Hindi when the team was together so that no one felt left out, Patel used to speak in Kannada with the players from the South.
