Multan:

Uncertainty prevails over the availability of Sourav Ganguly for the first Test against Pakistan beginning here on Sunday. Ganguly, who had stayed back in Lahore yesterday to undergo medical tests for his suspect lower back injury sustained during the last one-dayer on Wednesday, joined his teammates here but did not attend the practice session. Team Manager Ratnakar Shetty said an MRI scan had revealed no injury, but a "clearer picture" would emerge only by Saturday. "The good news is that the scan has come clean. There is no injury to the skipper. It is only a muscular pain and physio Andrew Leipus will have two more sessions with him," Shetty told PTI. Asked about the captain's availability for the first Test, he said, "it is too early to say anything at the moment. We will have to wait and see his progress," he said. In case Ganguly is ruled out, Rahul Dravid will captain the side and left-handed batsman Yuvraj Singh is likely to take Ganguly's place in the team. (PTI)
