SRK hails Ganguly's inclusion in Test squad

Kolkata:

Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan on Saturday hailed Sourav Ganguly's selection to the Test squad and said he was happy for the former Indian skipper.

"I feel happy for Sourav Ganguly," Khan said on the sidelines of his first meeting with the new Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) President Jagmohan Dalmiya.

"I am a Kolkata Knight Rider, so be it Sourav (Ganguly), Ajantha (Mendis) or (Brendon) McCullum... it makes me happy when any of our players do well. We have already started our next season preparation (in Australia), and we are upbeat about our good show next season," he added.

Asked if he sees Sourav's selection as some kind of a compromise formula, Khan quipped: "I am Shah Rukh Khan, not BCCI."

Calling himself a 'Kolkata-vaasi', the bollywood star said he had become a resident of the city, the day he bought the KKR's franchise.

"I've become Kolkata-vaasi, the day we bought KKR... I've every reason to be here in during puja."

Khan added that Eden Gardens is there home ground and he has come here to meet the members of the CAB and "say hello" to Dalmiya.
