Debut century more special than shirtless celebration at Lord's, insists Sourav Ganguly

Sourav Ganguly

Ganguly called it quits from Test cricket in 2008 because he had had enough of selection sagas, fresh from the Greg Chappell controversy which led to him being dropped from the Indian team, the southpaw revealed. "Kohli was right to point out that the team hasn't got enough time to prepare for the South Africa tour", said the former batsman, "They will have two practice matches but if it rains there, their three-day practice match preparation will also go for a toss".

Ganguly said the biggest problem in a team sport is the fact that one gets selected by others, so even if one works well, he/she may not get a place in the side. He has got 30 odd in about nine years. Raising the concerns ahead of the second Test in Nagpur, Kohli also said that people start judging players for their poor performances but they do not consider the time given to the cricketers to prepare for the game. The spat between the coach and Ganguly erupted in 2005 after the latter went public stating that the Australian had asked him to step down from captaincy. A hundred at Eden (104* vs Sri Lanka) on that sort of a pitch, you could see his expression. Pietersen tweeted, "Virat bats, I watch".

However, Wyatt had written "Kholi, Marry me" when she took to Twitter to express her love for the batting star. He is a lot more proactive than Tendulkar as captain. I think he'll get close to Sachin's ODI centuries (49). Every time they would show that footage (on a sports channel), I called the producer and told him I have 20,000 worldwide runs and several hundreds.

Former cricketer Sourav Ganguly. "But he said that is what he want to show", the 45-year-old said. Do not forget the name on the honour's board (for his hundred on Test debut at Lord's). "It (the shirt-waving) was a lot more out of satisfaction". There could be nobody better than Dona, his wife, to shed some light on the "bhadrolok" (gentleman). He does control the house.
