The CAB intends to ask Sourav Ganguly to lead Bengal against Tamil Nadu in the Ranji tie, Jan 3-6. Ganguly had, you'll recall, given up the captaincy immediately after he lost the national Test captaincy to Rahul Dravid.
t is learnt that the CAB top brass has planned to call Ganguly for tomorrow’s meeting where he is likely to be offered the captaincy as well as his suggestions are likely to be sought on the selection of the players. Ganguly after being chosen Bengal skipper, had passed the mantle to teammate Deep Dasgupta before the team’s first Ranji Trophy match this season against Maharashtra, held in Pune. It is also learnt that Ganguly will refuse to lead and instead, ask Dasgupta to continue as skipper.
