Kolkata, Aug 10 (Calcutta Tube/ IBNS): Former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly said the batting of Indian team is ‘outstanding’ with the trio of Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sehwag playing in the Test team.
“Indian team’s batting is outstanding. The three (Dravid, Tendulkar and Laxman) joint with Sehwag are excellent,” he said at the launch event of the new VLCC gymnasium and salon at Willow Tower in his neighbourhood in Behala.
Ganguly appreciated Suresh Raina’s performance at the recently concluded Test series against Sri Lanka as he commented: “Raina played good.”
But he cautioned that since the bowling of the present Indian side is young, the bowling coach needs to work hard on them.
Dada stated that he is confident about the good performance of the Indian team at Tri- series in Sri Lanka, where India is today playing against New Zealand.
But Ganguly did not make any comment on the issue of Commonwealth Games and all the problems and controversy surrounding it.
On his recent experience of shooting with Amitabh Bachchan, he said: “He is a popular person all around the world, good to see him.”
The duo shot for the upcoming Champions League T20 in South Africa, where Big B is endorsing for the popular sports channel ESPN-STAR.
Tollywood actress Rituparna Sengupta, renowned music composer and Tabla player Bikram Ghosh, were present at the event.
