    Alright,I'd like to believe you although its hard to swallow about his injury...but the you just cant deny the other stuff I said earlier,there are suspicions about his 100% committment to all players in the team,also he's batting has undergone a downslide,fielding is pathetic,also as SJS rightly said the non-strikers fear him as well,and believe me there's no denying as a captain he was exceptional at some point of time but he has retained captaincy because of Dalmiya and the Board politics...

    It now appears he's going to play.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Mmmmm.... never have taken to him myself. He's always seemed a little too pleased with himself. No doubt Dalmiya & Co have decided that Clive Lloyd was out of order in suspending Ganguly; if so then that's a dereliction of duty to the greater good of the game. Watching test and internaitonal cricket is way too expensive for me as it is; if I did get to go again I would like to see a full day's play not one deliberately slowed down by some snide gamesmanship. It's just not cricket, don't you know!!

    Ganguly is one of the best Indian captain ever, on top he's a class batsman, hence his suspension can NEVER be good for cricket.

    I think C LLoyd was too harsh on Ganguly, anyway its good to learn that Ganguly will still be playing test matches.The cricket world needs the charm and grace of Saurav.

    Well what would you do if a player gets injured or the bowl gets soaking wet in every over because of the dew.

    Dalmiya and Co. have not decided that Ganguly is innocent, they have only used their right to appeal. It's the ICC which is going to decide. Ganguly has already said that he doesn't have any problem with any punishment and he will accept it.

    So is it right to arrest someone for robbery, when they did not commit the act, simply because they have previously done it?

    Ganguly has been guilty of this before, no doubt. But they had to change the ball 8 times! Not to mention Butt's injury. Some leniancy must be shown.

    Yes, and 8 ball changes don't take an hour

    If Ganguly's boys (a more appropriate name for the Indian team) won as many tournaments as Vaughan's England or the Fleming-led Kiwis, would he have so many making drop calls on him? His captaincy is very much like Nasser Hussain's.

    You're trying to tell us it takes about 7 and a half minutes to change a ball?

    You're conveniently forgetting Butt's cramping.
