Captain Sourav Ganguly's availability for the fourth Test came in doubt today after a medical report on his upper thigh strain failed to put a date on his return to action. The statement on Ganguly's recovery issued by the team management was loaded with medical jargon and did not say whether he would be available for the fourth Test starting in Mumbai on November 3. The statement merely said that after a medical check-up including bone scan, MRI and diagnostic ultrasound, it was revealed that Ganguly suffered from "intra-articular pathology of the right hip joint noted by increased synovial fluid accumulation." "It is common for hip joint pathology to produce symptoms of referred pain distally into the groin and thigh. "He is now receiving medical treatment for this condition and his progress will be monitored carefully over the next few days." Ganguly pulled out at the last minute of the third Test, now on here at the VCA ground. With less than a week to go for the fourth Test, time seems to be running out for the skipper. None of the team management was immediately available for comment. (PTI)
