Kolkata: Jul 31, 2013

Former captain Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday hailed the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) intiative for India ‘A’ team’s tour to South Africa ahead of the gruelling Test series.

“A team is going ahead of the Test series, so that’s a good preparation. This team has the potential,” Ganguly told reporters after attening Cricket Association of Bengal’s annual general meeting in Kolkata on Wednesday.

Cheteshwar Pujara-led India ‘A’ will compete in a ODI tri-series also involving Australia ‘A’ before two four-day games beginning August 8.

Asked about Virat Kohli‘s captaincy in the ongoing Zimbabwe ODI series, Ganguly said the Delhi youngster has a long way to go.

“It was just for the Zimbabwe series. First let him become captain, then we will say.”

Ganguly further predicted that England, with a 2-0 lead in the Ashes, would retain the high-voltage series against Australia.

A member of the Bengal cricket development committee, Ganguly further wished new coach Ashok Malhotra best wishes for the upcoming season.

“I’m yet to speak to him. I just want to wish him good luck and hope the team plays well.”
