Former India captain and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has said that he needs some days practice and can still score runs if he gets back on the field.
“If I was given two more series in ODIs, I would’ve scored more runs. I don’t even need six months, give me three, I will score runs,” said Ganguly to the Bengali newspaper Sangbad Pratidin.
Ganguly was one of the finest captains that India had ever got and also played a massive role in introducing players like Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra.
He led India in the World Cup 2003 where the side ended as runners-up after losing to Australia. India also ended as the runners-up in 2000 Knockout Trophy under his captaincy while won the NatWest Trophy in 2002.
Apart from this Ganguly’s side was the first one to win a Test series on Pakistani soil.
Talking about his own performances and milestones, the left-handed batsman is one of the Indian players to score a Test hundred on debut. He achieved the feat in 1996 at Lord’s.
Ganguly represented India in 113 Tests scoring over 7000 runs at a healthy average of 42.2. In the ODIs, he was capped 311 times and notched up a total of 11363 runs at an average of 41.
