Durban: Sourav Ganguly, the India captain, has dismissed a suggestion (in a section of the Media) that he would quit after the World Cup.
“I have no such plans... I’ll again be available to lead India,” Sourav announced emphatically at Wednesday’s pre semi-final interaction with the Media. He added: “Why should people read between the lines' Just because I’m turning grey' Or, just because I’ve said captains can have a shelf-life'”
Sourav first made the remarks in an interview to The Telegraph last month and, then, said much the same thing in an interview to the BBC. That got twisted out of context.
Meanwhile, asked to comment on Waqar Younis’ sacking, Sourav quipped: “In Pakistan, captains get used to it... I feel sorry for him but, then, if you can’t deliver, somebody else will be brought in... That’s life.”
Sourav added he was “shocked” by Shaun Pollock’s removal at the weekend.
