Chennai:

A sore throat forced former India skipper Sourav Ganguly out of field for nearly two hours during the first day's play between India 'A' and New Zealand 'A' on Friday.

"Ganguly has a sore throat and is on medication. But he is getting better," India 'A' Coach Dav Whatmore said at the end of the day's play.

Ganguly is playing this match to get some match practice ahead of the first Test against Australia starting October 9 in Bangalore.

The 36-year-old, who fielded in the first slip in the first two hours, did not return to the field after lunch.

He returned to the field only about 10 minutes before tea-break.

However, there was no official word from the umpires or match referee D Vasu, who said that it was an "internal matter" and can't be discussed with media.
