India's stuttering form in the one-day arena may have an unlikely beneficiary: Sourav Ganguly is in line for a recall to the Test side, nine months after he was jettisoned followed the resounding 341-run defeat at Karachi.

Well he's correct,"Aaj Tak" is airing this "sick" news at the moment..well i think if he gets elected india will enter the match with a wicket down in the form of ganguly..
So when india bats in the test,u will se the score 0 for loss of 1 wicket.As we all know our gr8 dada's pedigree against the short-ball.

I made a slight mistake and have edited the post accordingly. Sorry for the goof up! :)

Yeah, I saw it on Aaj Tak and posted it. Then I checked it on the web and found that it wasn't official yet.

I have never liked Ganguly but I have this feeling that his returning will change the team's fortunes. This South Africa series is doomed though. India cannot do anything without Dravid, not in a Test series.

How can ganguly change the fortunes of indian team?? i don't how can you select a player who has performed miserably since 2003 both in international matches and in domestic for last 1.5 years...

Everyone knows that he cannot play short-pitch balling and is a walking-wicket these days..

But,it might just shut-up his fans when he fails to get even a double-digit score in series..

As I already mentioned, I do not like Ganguly and was very pleased when he was thrown out, but I just have this feeling. Of course, it may be totally wrong. :)

he may not be re-called,coz now the media have started saying that he "maybe re-called"...
I remember b4 we were going to WI,media had said that ganguly has cleared his differences with selection committee and will be selected..

I hope they are wrong once again..

If he does get re-called it MUST be based only on his performance in the domestic level first...just like the Aussies did with Shane Warne & Brett Lee...if Sourav can't even fare well at domestic level, there is no use in brining him back especailly to a place like South Africa...coz he ain't absolutely no good with the bouncy pitches & rising deliveries.

Right off the assembly line
Times now is telling that this is a rumor .I dont know why so many people from media are vouching for him to comeback .India a lot better players than ganguly .They dont get a chance .When they are spending so much on cricketers the criteria for selection should be purely on performance.we dont anyone who scores century in one full moon be it ganguly or shewag or any other player for that matter.
These guys are more busy in shooting ads than practising .It happened with sourav ,its now the same with rahul.stop all adversting then see how they play .

Thats impossible, as Ganguly isnt an opener.

Anyway, I would be glad to see him back. He was dropped under unfortunate circumstances due to political reasons.

Totally Agree

Just for the sake of record ....

Poor old ganguly is getting much worst treatment than Match Fixer like Azharuddin ... God knows how many matches we lost to Pakistan under his captaincy ....

Just mention Ganguly's name.... people will start to train their guns on him!!! Poor old chap...

During his good old days ... Slow Left Arm bowlers like Daniel Vettori & Niki Boje had nightmares of Ganguly coming down the wickets....:shock:

ur wrong their buddy,i have hardly seen anybody criticising dada on tv..on the contrary dravid/chappell/sachin have wrongly criticised without any reason..by dada's sympathizers in the media
@Indyan
I think you took my phrase literally..u need to understand the thought behind it..i meant india will go to bat with a wicket-down since dada will easy to out..

Although I do not support that Sourav should be called back in his present form I still say that Sourav is a MUCH BETTER player than some of the team members in the present Indian cricket team touring South Africa. Plus Sourav also has the agressiveness that our current team lacks.

Sachin : yes. He is a great player and I am sure he will get back in form. But Chappel and Dravid deserve every bit ot critisizm they are getting. They tried their politics and ruined every thing. The team selection is just nuts.
Gautam Gambhir did well last season. They picked Jaffar over him.
They ignored VVS and Saurav and are now sending Dinesh Kartik as a batsman! They ignored Kumble for no good reason for months. That certainly cost us a few matches. In Champions trophy, they played against teams comfortable against fast bowling with only 1 specialised spinner.

If you analyse the team selection during last 1 year you will see that it has been really nonsense stuff.

Example of a great player: failed yet again yesterday :D ...scoring only 1.:rolleyes:

I think one can only be envious of ur cricketing knowledge and ur judging skills...

But if you judge a player on his performance in couple of matches,than plzz remind urself that dada's last 2 odi centuries have come way back in feb-2003 that too against kenya...
Than what abt rest of 2003,04,05 ?????
dada has scored just 1 century in last 12months of domestic cricket...

So if we were to judge dada by ur yardstick than he should have retired a long-ago and not coming back by doing politics..

Also i undertsnad that your a bengali and will support him even if he gets 0's in next 50 inngs,so plz we can discuss matters with people with open-minds and not with "pea" brains like u guys..
__________
if a non-performer like dada canbe supported and canbe called good player than plzz..even pathan can be called a "top-order" batsman,going by your standards..
