Dada is Back

Happy to see that the Tiger is back…

As S. Dinakar says in The Hindu

The 35-year-old Ganguly is now in the form of his life; he could middle the ball in sleep. He has made runs on pitches with pace and lift in South Africa, conjured a couple of gems when the ball swung around in England and has built monuments with delicate stroke-play against Pakistan.

As a left-hander in the middle-order, he adds a lot to the line-up. The manner in which he timed the ball on a surface of low bounce at the Chinnaswamy Stadium was astonishing. These were the shots of a gifted cricketer.

Ganguly’s commitment shone through in his bowling. Despite the tour of Australia looming, he ran in hard and stretched every sinew. Not for a moment was he concerned about picking up an injury while performing what was only an occasional job. This, really, has been the highlight of his triumphant comeback. And we are not talking about numbers here.

and he looks hungry…
