Former India captain Sourav Ganguly felt that MS Dhoni should not opt for a turner in the coming Test match against England at Eden Gardens and said that there could be a lot of changes in Indian cricket if the home side lost the third Test starting on December 5.
"Dhoni should not seek a turner. If the ball turns, the England spinners will create problems for the Indian batsmen. And if India lose two back-to-back Tests then there will be lot of changes in Indian cricket," he said.
Thanks to the heroics of England spinners Monty Panesar and Greame Swann, India were beaten by ten wickets in the second Test of the ongoing series with five session remaining.
Ganguly also spoke to NDTV about Sachin Tendulkar and said that, “Yes, his reflexes have gone down. But that is bound to happen with age. But what I feel is that Tendulkar is out of form and needs runs.
“I want to earnestly believe that he will get runs in the two remaining Tests.”
