Sourav Ganguly on Friday delivered lecture at the fourth Dilip Sardesai Memorial Oration at Bombay Gymkhana in Mumbai.


Ganguly said "I still see Ranji Trophy as the place to search for good cricketers, especially in the Test format because it is completely different skills."


"Indian Premier League (IPL) will produce players for that format and the 50-overs format.  If I’m a selector and picking players for India then I will give a lot of importance to Ranji Trophy, Duleep Trophy and Irani Trophy performances to pick players for the Test side," he added.
