SG ka Kamal
Um, sorry, bad pun. The crux of the story being, the senior Indian player had advice, and more, to offer some of the Pak youngsters.
After the three-day tour match ended yesterday, Kamal was seen engrossed in a long one-to-one session with Ganguly. Since the Pakistani squad for the first Test against India had just been announced, it is believed Ganguly consoled the batsman, asking him not to be disheartened.
“Ganguly told him that every player faces such periods in life and tends to get frustrated and lose focus. But a good and sensible player always puts such disappointments behind him and looks ahead,” a report in local daily The News said, quoting a person who was witness to the interaction.
“Ganguly also pointed out to Kamal that he himself was unaware why the selectors had dropped him despite his track record. He said such things happen and since Asim had proved himself at the Test level, he should simply look ahead and concentrate on scoring runs at every level.”
