Ganguly seeks nice stint at Northants


In less than a fortnight, Sourav Ganguly will be off to England, a country that’s always going to have a ‘special place’ in his heart.

For the second year in succession, India’s most successful Test captain will be featuring in county cricket,albeit, this time, as a replacement for one of Northamptonshire’s signings.

“It’s going to be nice getting away from home and India… Playing for Northamptonshire will, hopefully, be a good change as I’m going to be doing what I like best… Then, I’ll be based pretty close to London, a favourite city of mine,’’ Sourav told The Telegraph, Kolkata when contacted on his cell-phone.

Sourav added: “I don’t have to prove anything (by playing first-class cricket), but I’m going to be ready if the selectors recall me… England will always have a special place in my heart… I scored a hundred on my Test debut at Lord’s, I did very well in the1999 World Cup and also did well on our 2002 tour.

“In fact, it’s not that I’ve delivered in only the India colours… I had a reasonable stint with Lancashire in 2000 and performed for Glamorgan last summer… It’s nice that Northamptonshire chose me when a vacancy (Chris Rogers’ call-up for Australia A) cropped up.”
