Ganguly Eyes Up County Spot

Sourav Ganguly has once again stated his desire to play County Cricket next summer and is open to any offers.

The Indian captain had been a possible target of Somerset before they opted for the South African skipper instead, but Ganguly has insisted he would be happy to sign for any county that would take him.

Ganguly has experienced county cricket before when he spent a troubled season at Lancashire in 2000, but dressing room fallouts and a dreadful run of form where Ganguly didn’t manage to score a single century in 13 first class matches.

Ganguly could be a good option for any county as other than a short tour for two week in Sri Lanka in August he would be available to stay all season.

A handful of counties are still in the hunt for an overseas player but none so far seem to have taken an interest in the Indian skipper, though Gloucestershire and Warwickshire would seem the only real options available, unless a county would be interested in a short term cover option.
