Sourav Ganguly: Focus must be on Australia series

Posted by Admin On 11:10 AM


Sourav Ganguly feels that India must now focus on the all important Australia series or else Team India runs the risk losing of whatever gained during past 11 years. Ganguly, India's most winning Test skipper said that after the catastrophic away series against England, the team's preparation would be under scrutiny in the tour Down Under.
For me, it's not the future home series against England or the West Indies. It's the four-Test series tour of Australia which I am looking forward to,he said. India has to do well there. Our 11 years of preparation to perform well at overseas venues will go down if we don't do well there (Australia),Ganguly said at a promotional event here today.
Ganguly's statement came close on the heels of India's disastrous England tour, where they lost the Test series 0-4 to meekly submit their numero uno Test status to the Andrew Strauss-led home team.
The reigning One-Day International world champions did no better in the shorter version of the game as they failed to win a single match in the rain-marred five-match ODI series. Ganguly also emphasised on the need to prepare well before any away series and hailed the BCCI to make arrangements for three warm-up games before their tour opener in Australia.
The preparation is very important to do well in an overseas tour. It's good that BCCI has arranged for two-three warm-up games before the actual series which starts in Melbourne, the left-handed batsman said.
Ganguly, however, seemed sure about India's chances in the future ODI series and one-off T20 match against England at home.The condition here is different. India in India is a terrific side. Unless they play really bad cricket, I don't see them lose the series, he said.
The newly-elected chairman of BCCI's technical committee, Ganguly further said that the contentious Decision Review System needed to be fine tuned before being implemented fully.
