No. Bad form is a part of any game. Sourav?s contribution to the game of cricket is immeasurable. He knows his problem and he should just utilise the time he has got to regain his form. We should all support him in his quest.

Yes. Sourav should hang up his boots. He is really out of form and has not scored too many runs in the test matches and the ODIs against Pakistan. He should take a break and let Rahul Dravid continue with the captaincy. For the time being, the Prince of Bengal should try and retrieve his form by playing for Team Bengal.

Sourav?s Ganguly?s past record is superb and that cannot be ignored. He is just going through a lean phase. He has been a good batsman and a successful captain for years. He should not hang up his boots now. Instead, he should be optimistic and fight back.

No. Sourav ganguly is our most successful captain. In addition, he is a world-class batsman. Sourav is just temporarily out of form. Our whole-hearted support will definitely help him to regain his form.

It?s high time for Sourav to hang up his boots as he is not in a comfortable position. It was he who came with the idea of introducing new faces in the circuit so he should now vacate his seat to accommodate young and promising cricketers.

No his failure is temporary, not permanent. Ganguly is honoured as one of the best captains of the world. Ups and downs are a part of our lives. Ganguly is no exception to that. So why should he be asked to resign?

Yes. his recent performances have proved that he is a failure as a cricketer. He should pay more attention to net practice and try to regain his form. Ads and SOURAV?S can wait.

No. is this the reward India?s most successful captain deserves? We must remember that ?form is temporary and class is permanent.?
