Kolkata: Former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly is keen to play the four-day and 50-over Ranji Trophy matches for his home side Bengal.
"I am available to play for Bengal in the four-day and 50-over (Ranji) matches. However, I will not be available for the T20 ties," Ganguly told reporters on Monday.
The flamboyant batsman keeps himself fit and undergoes practice sessions at the Eden Gardens when he is in the city.
Ganguly, as a chairman of the Cricket Development Committee of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), attended its first meeting at the club house.
Ways and means to develop the game in Bengal was discussed in the meeting, he added.
The CAB on August 24 retained its star-studded cricket development committee led by Ganguly though it met only twice in previous two seasons with little success.
Ganguly continues to be the chairman of the committee that also has yesteryear cricketers Arun Lal, Ashok Malhotra and Pranab Roy.
