IS Mahindra on Ganguly
A vote of confidence, from the board president for the ex-captain.
Mr Mahindra said at the moment the selectors did not want to tamper with a winning combination but that did not mean the doors had been shut on Ganguly. “At present nobody wants to disturb the winning combination, otherwise I don’t think there’s any problem for Sourav to return to the international team,” Mr Mahindra told a TV channel. Asked specifically if Ganguly held a chance to be a part of the team for the World Cup, he said, “Who has ruled him out? Nobody has. This is the handy work of gossipmongers who believe in sensationalism,” a press release by the channel quoted Mahindra as saying.
“He is a great player, he has also been a great captain. We are proud of him and he will definitely make a comeback to the team,” said the BCCI chief. “In my view, even the selectors have not taken any negative view on Sourav’s likely comeback,” he added.
