Sourav Ganguly to play for Pune Warriors in IPL 2011

Former Indian captain, Sourav Ganguly has been signed by the Pune Warriors India to play IPL. Ganguly, who was unsold in IPL auction will replace injured Ashish Nehra.

Abhijit Sarkar, Pune's team director on a statement confirmed the signing of Ganguly. "We were waiting for Ashish Nehra's fitness report and ultimately the report came yesterday. I was already in talks with Ganguly and we decided that the amount of experience that Sourav has in cricket will no doubt help the team. So we finalised Ganguly last night," said Sarkar.

Ganguly was unsold on the IPL auction on January where he was base priced $400,000. In earlier 3 edition of IPL, Ganguly played for Kolkata Knight Riders. Ganguly was in the verse of comeback in IPL earlier for Kochi but was rejected by IPL governing council. Further, he was asked the mentor's role from KKR team which he rejected.

Earlier Chris Gayle was signed for Bangalore's team in place of injured Dirk Nannes. Gayle was also unsold in the auctions.


  1. Pune do need a LOT of help

  2. Good to have dada back in action.

  3. Well said! It's a pity that Pune is not playing KKR at Eden Garden's otherwise, history would have been created by the Kolkotta fan's cheering for the pune team at Eden Gardens, showing SRK his place.
