Yuvi and Viru won’t feature in 2015 World Cup: Ganguly
‘It will be difficult for Sehwag and Yuvraj to play in this World Cup. Because World Cup is so near and Dhoni won’t make many changes in the side,’ a candid Ganguly said at an event here.

Ganguly, who was known for unearthing talents during his tenure as skipper, though lavished praised on Yuvraj and Sehwag and called them genuine match-winners.

‘They were great players, one of the best I have seen but time catches up with everyone and so is the case with Viru and Yuvi,’ Ganguly said at the ‘Salaam Cricket Conclave’, a day- long event organised by India Today group.

Ganguly believes that the Indian cricket team has a realistic chance of defending the world title in the tournament slated to be held in Australia and New Zealand form February next year.

‘India has a quality ODI team though they have not done well in Tests abroad. But in ODI there is a good chance,’ he said.

Pointing out that every team needs some x-factors to go the distance, Ganguly said this Indian team has that.

‘India have four or five good quality players and these will be crucial x-factors for the team to do well Down Under,’ he said.

Praising both Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina for their superlative shows with the bat, Ganguly mentioned that India’s performance in the upcoming quadrennial event will depend on how these two perform.
