Kolkata,feb.6 : At a time when Team India’s stock is at an all-time low, trust Sourav Ganguly to stand up for MS Dhoni’s men. India look jaded just before the World Cup, having spent the better part of a harsh Australian summer winless in both white and blue jerseys.
However, Sourav, the former India captain under whom India made the World Cup final in 2003, is not worried about the team’s current lack of form, though he is con cerned about the fitness issues in the team. Sourav, who will leave for Australia next week to join the commentary team, shared his views about India’s chances during an exclusive chat with TOI at his Behala residence on Thursday.
Writing off Team India on the basis of their below-par show in Tests and the tri-series would be a kneejerk reaction. It does not do justice to the team. I think our boys will prove a lot of people wrong in the coming days. I expect them to make the semifinals. Thereafter, it is a question of having two good matches.
