New Delhi: Former captain Sourav Ganguly says the likes of Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh and Zaheer Khan can still make a comeback to India’s national team but they need to be “hungry” for that.
All the three players are along with Virender Sehwag are out of favour as young guns like Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar have performed excellently in their absence.
“No player is completely out of the team. In 2011, the Indian team looked incomplete without these players. And now they are out of the team. So you cannot say what will happen tomorrow,” Sourav told Star Cricket.
“They are all very good players. They have won India the World Cup, Test matches, Test series. So if they have hunger inside them, they can surely be back. They just need to focus on cricket, train hard, be fit and make a comeback.
“...They are all great players. Sehwag is one of the greatest as an opener in Indian cricket. Zaheer is closing in on 300 wickets. Look at the performance of Yuvraj in World Cups, be it 2007 or 2011. He has been the best. So you can’t keep such players out for a long time. They would want to do better than what they have already done,” he added.
