Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly had a bad run with the bat throughout the Pakistan series during the Bangalore Test earlier this year. It even resulted in him missing out on a place in the World XI team to take on Australia in the super series in October. But the Prince of Kolkata is not perturbed by his omission. "I have no reaction to this. The best people are selecting the team, I don't think it is right to say any thing," he said. Coach selection The other talking point in Indian cricket is who is going to replace John Wright as coach. While Ganguly admitted he was going to miss the Kiwi, he was reluctant to talk about the selection of the new coach, preferring to stay out of the debate. The Indian skipper however felt that forming a selection panel for the purpose was the correct way of approaching the issue. "I think the Board has done the right thing by appointing a panel to pick the team. I don't have any view and I don't think it is right on my part to say," he said. "The Board has selected the right people, they are in touch with the game and are commentators. They know best," he added. The issue of the coach though is not uppermost on the left-hander's mind. Ganguly will be looking to use the time off to get his game back to peak form ahead of next season.
