    actually this was not the first ganguly made his comeback, he acutally played in 1991 but he was dropped for 5 years, he made a great comeback in 1996.

    Bradman's comeback wasn't too shabby either. Averaged over 100 after he made it!

    No comeback can surpass the likes of Michael Vaughan and Reon King IMO.

    Mind, Ganguly's does certainly come close and it's been a delight to behold TBH.

    Yep, Thorpe's gave me massive pleasure too TBH. Possibly overcoming what he did is an even greater achievement than overcoming injury, actually.

    DK Lillee, a lot of good judges said he'd never bowl fast again after his crippling back injury in '73. Turned out he did. Reasonably well, too.

    Reon King came back!? When? Where?
    I hope you're not mentioning the series in Australia.

    I still reckon Reon should be in the 1st team more often, he's better than daren powell!

    Its been amazing. My respect for Sourav has definitely gone up considering the way he's handled himself since his return. He showed signs in South Africa in December and just kicked on from there.

    If Trescothick were to return and be succesful it'd rank up with the best

    Agreed. I didn't like the fact that Ganguly was back in the team, but he's proven me wrong and looks like he could go a couple more years. Fair play to him, it's great to see.
