Sourav and the Challengers

Sourav Ganguly might no longer be a name to reckon with for the national selectors, but he is still very much a prominent name for the Indian sports media. Not a single day passes by without a new article concerning him making it to the sports section. In the latest one that is doing the rounds (no, not the one where Sania Mirza goes ga-ga over Sourav's presence at the Sunfeast Open) he mentions how keen he is to play in the Challenger Series.

He was recently named in the list of top 30 cricketers in the country, so I do expect him to play in the tournament. He skipped the Challenger Series that was played around the same time last year, because of a mild tennis elbow symptom. His unavailability for the tournament then made it easy for the selectors to name Dravid as the new skipper. His mere availability for this year's tourney wouldn't really suffice influencing the selectors in any fashion. His real challenge would be to put in some really strong performances at the domestic level and impress the new "Kiran More less" selection committee.

Hi,

Nice blog!

Why don’t you consider writing about some of the new “India 2.0” sites that are creating a little buzz as well?
