No one's favourite, says Ganguly

KOLKATA: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly does not have any personal favourite to win the upcoming ICC World Cup but says India will be among those who have the capability to win the title.

“I do not believe in calling anyone a favourite but India definitely has a very good side that can win the title. You cannot rule out strong teams like Australia, England and South Africa while Pakistan may well be the dark horse of the tournament,” Ganguly said, while appearing as an expert in a programme hosted by a local television channel at the Town Hall on Wednesday.

“In 1983 when India became the world champion, no one thought it would lift the cup. It is thus not wise to make anyone a pre-tournament favourite,” said Ganguly, as he interacted with students from different universities, who formed his audience.

To a question on whether he would still consider an opportunity to play in the IPL IV, Ganguly said he would definitely play once he gets a call from any of the franchises.

Ganguly also said that he might consider a future in cricket administration.
