Kolkata:

Former Indian cricket skipper Sourav Ganguly might have lost the captaincy, but now his chance to find a place for himself in the team lies in his hands, or more specifically in his elbow. The left-hander batsman for the moment might be encouraged by word from a Kolkata orthopedic who said that he should be able to play for the East Zone in the Duleep trophy. But before that he will consult with BCCI's medical expert doctor Anant Joshi on the 18th of this month. If he's cleared by Dr Joshi and Indian team physio John Gloster, Ganguly will be able to captain the East Zone side on Oct 20 against the North Zone. The game holds extra importance for Ganguly because of BCCI's condition that players must prove their fitness by playing domestic cricket to be eligible for selection in the senior team.
