Kolkat Knight Riders captain Sourav Ganguly thinks the DLF IPL Twenty20 would propel him back to India’a ODI squad. Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid (Bangalore Royal Challengers), who both have scored more than 10,000 runs in One-Day internationals, did not find a place in the Indian ODI team after selectors and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni decided to go for a young team with an eye on future, igniting the senior vs junior debate in the dressing room.
Sourav Ganguly also said IPL gives immense opportunity for young cricketers.
The Kolkata Knight Riders team is being promoted by a consortium which includes Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla.
Australian skipper Ricky Ponting and India’s young pacer Ishant Sharma are also part of the team along with Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar.
