Saurav Ganguly is well known for his many Resurrections and yesterday when the five wise men headed by Krish Srikanth decided to include the southpaw in the upcoming series against Australia, Ganguly had resurrected himself again. After being left out of the Rest of India team in the Irani Trophy many people including this very intelligent blogger questioned his future.
But Ganguly time and again continues to impress with his many comebacks. The aggressive middle order stroke player was sacked by BCCI as captain and soon from the Indian team after strained relations with the then coach of India, Greg Chappel. Many including me thought we would never see the classy left-hander ever again in the international arena, but after 16 months he came back to the international scene and became the highest run-getter in tests for India last year surpassing Tendulkar. He handled the conditions in South Africa and England and scored his first double century. But 2008 has not been so good as Ganguly had only a decent performance down under and in the Emerald Isles, he had a nightmarish experience.
But now that Cheeka (Krish Srikanth) and his team of wise men have handed Saurav another lifeline be sure that Ganguly will perform. You can never count the Prince of Calcutta out as he is the king of comebacks.
