'Sourav Ganguly showed lack of respect for the game'

Steve Waugh, former Australian captain who lead Australia in the historic 2001 test series against India, said that former Indian skipper and 2001 test series captain Sourav Ganguly had shown a "lack of respect" by coming late for the toss in the 2001 test series.

 
"The fact that he turned up late every game - it was his choice. I just thought it showed a lack of respect for the game. It didn't really affect me. The match referee actually told him that he had to turn up on time," said Steve Waugh about the controversial episode.
 
Meanwhile, Ganguly denied Waugh's statement and said that it happened only once. "There is a tradition that both team captains have to sport the team blazer while going for the toss. On that particular day, I did not get my blazer and it took time to get hold of it... That was the reason for the delay," Ganguly said.
