We will have to play well on Wednesday: Ganguly

Kolkata:

Having propped up Bengal with an unbeaten century, former India captain Sourav Ganguly said the job is not over yet and the hosts will have to pile up more runs on Wednesday to brighten their chance of a win against Delhi in their Ranji Trophy Super League match.

After a top-order collapse that left Bengal reeling for 43 for four, Ganguly (110 batting) engaged himself with an undefeated 222-run fifth wicket partnership with Wriddhiman Saha (106 batting) as the hosts ended the day with 265 for four.

"It's job half-done, we have to play good cricket tomorrow. It was an important match for us and after the top-order failure, we needed some runs badly," Ganguly said.

He had high praises for Saha, who played a perfect ally to the ace left-hander and said, "The credit should also go to him. He played equally well, even better than me."

After he was dropped in the first slip by Ankur Julka off left-arm spinner Vikas Mishra, Ganguly had a fluent unbeaten innings laced with two sixes and 11 boundaries.

Ganguly, who was seen catching up with India-Sri Lanka humdinger on TV after the match got over, also praised Virender Sehwag who hit 146 in India's victory.
