That's just because the standard of batting in this Indian test team is very, very high.
Mostly everybody barring Ganguly in the top 6 averages more than 45.
Sure Ganguly has his weaknesses, but he's not as bad as a test batsman as many people like to put it.
He'll be a One Day great, but never a test great thats for sure. But he will be recognised as a decent test player when he retires.
