Return of the prince.........

This post is about a long awaited return of one of the greatest batsmen and captain India has ever seen........ Yes its the prince of Kolkata .... Sourav Ganguly....... And my heartiest congratulations to him for doing that......
Its been almost one year since he was dropped from the team , now he has been brought back to shoulder a struggling India team..... yes the latest 20-20 win would have boosted morale of the team , but there is no denying the series of failures in the challenger trophy and in South Africa......
It was a similar situation where Nawab of pataudi was dropped from the team and was brought back to shoulder a struggling indian side back then...Now its dada's turn .... If he is capable of bringing the team back to their feet then he will surely be go down in history books with glory and pride.........
I sometimes wonder why he the team management didn't consider him for this long .... was it because of some childish issue with the coach...... come on Mr. Chappel get over with it... finally its a win that matters and he is not going to make India win by fighting over some petty issue...........
Rahul Dravid is the current captain and i am a great fan of his.... but personally i like Dravid as more of a player than a captain .... The main strength of Ganguly is he can keep team together even in crisis..... This is what Rahul Dravid lacks.......
I believe he (Ganguly) paved the way of new and better Indian team during his captaincy days... which is now slowly degrading in his absence.......
His statistics will give you strong message that whatever has happened to him is purely injustice - 22 hundred close to 15000 ODI runs is no kiddish thing ..... So its great to have him back.......
But will he show the India team the right way...... Will he be able to make India see the dawn of a win again..... that only time will tell ....... Meanwhile all we can do is just have hope in the team and cheer for India.......


Hold on to your horses folks.. Its time for the Return of the prince ............
