- Ganguly gave interview to a Bengali newspaper, said – I can score again in Test

- Ganguly said – If I got 1-2 more series in Test cricket, then I would have scored more
Saurav Ganguly's mind is once again attracted to play Test cricket. It is like listening to his new statement. The former Indian captain and current BCCI president has said that if he gets three months of training and some Ranji matches to play, he can score runs in Test cricket again.
Ganguly said this to a Bengali newspaper 'Samvad daily'. Ganguly was interviewing this newspaper on the last days of his cricketing career. He said, 'If I had got two more ODI series to play, I would have scored more. If I had not retired in the Nagpur Test, I would have scored in the next two Test series as well. To be fair, you give me six months for now training, let me play a Ranji match, I will still score runs for India in Test cricket. I do not want even 6 months, give only three. I'll score runs.
The former lefthand batsman said, 'You will not be able to give me a chance to play, but how will you break the trust in me?' The former Indian captain said that he was dropped informally from ODI cricket. I was among the top performing batsmen in 2007-08 yet I was ruled out.
Ganguly said, 'It was incredible. I was among the batsmen to have scored the most runs in ODIs. If the stage is taken away from you, then it does not mean how good your performance is. And what would you prove without a platform then? Who else will prove it? This is what happened to me.
Let me tell you that Sourav Ganguly retired from Test cricket after the series played against Australia in 2008. He played the last Test match of his career in Nagpur. He played his last ODI against Pakistan in Gwalior in 2007.
