Sourav Ganguly welcomes Bhajji recall for Oz series

Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly has welcomed the national selectors’ decision to recall off-spinner Harbhajan Singh for the first two Tests of the upcoming series against Australia. ‘It’s a good decision to bring him back into the side. I’ve always been hopeful of Bhajji. But it’s the skipper (MS Dhoni) who will  decide whether he would feature in the playing  XI,’ Ganguly said  on Monday.

Asked about Gautam Gambhir’s omission, Ganguly said, ‘It’s normal to be left out when you’re not doing well. But I’m confident he would do well to make a comeback.’ India might have lost to England in their last Test series at home, but Ganguly said the hosts would have the edge against Australia.

‘Both the teams are going through a transition phase. India will have the slight home advantage to win the series. But it all depends how they utilise the conditions,’ he said.

‘But you would have do well. It’s important for the youngsters as India have a busy Test schedule ahead,’ the former skipper added.Wishing luck to Sachin Tendulkar, Ganguly said, ‘Hope he does well for India, it’s high time to fire up for him.’ Ganguly also welcomed the selection of Bengal pacer Ashok Dinda who is yet to get his maiden Test cap.
