In less than a fortnight, Sourav Ganguly will be off to England, a country thatâ€™s always going to have a â€˜special placeâ€™ in his heart.
For the second year in succession, Indiaâ€™s most successful Test captain will be featuring in county cricket,albeit, this time, as a replacement for one of Northamptonshireâ€™s signings.
â€œItâ€™s going to be nice getting away from home and India… Playing for Northamptonshire will, hopefully, be a good change as Iâ€™m going to be doing what I like best… Then, Iâ€™ll be based pretty close to London, a favourite city of mine,â€™â€™ Sourav told The Telegraph, Kolkata when contacted on his cell-phone.
Sourav added: â€œI donâ€™t have to prove anything (by playing first-class cricket), but Iâ€™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 Lordâ€™s, I did very well in the1999 World Cup and also did well on our 2002 tour.
â€œIn fact, itâ€™s not that Iâ€™ve delivered in only the India colours… I had a reasonable stint with Lancashire in 2000 and performed for Glamorgan last summer… Itâ€™s nice that Northamptonshire chose me when a vacancy (Chris Rogersâ€™ call-up for Australia A) cropped up.â€
