Ahemdabad: India captain Saurav Ganguly termed the pitch at the Motera Stadium as not a good One-day wicket even though his team registered a thumping victory over Zimbabwe Ganguly, who led the side from the front with a blistering 144, said that though this was a good knock, he would not term it as his best innings. His best innings, according to him, was the 153 against New Zealand at Gwalior last year.

Ganguly also gave credit to Yuvraj, Joshi and Badani, who added 50 runs in the last five overs to help India past the 300-run mark. On using so many bowlers, Ganguly said, ''We had the option, therefore we used them.'' Ganguly also said that Agarkar developed a slight side strain last evening, therefore, we decided not to risk him.When asked whether he would be now aiming at the international most One-day hundreds after scoring his 16th, Ganguly said he would prefer to score more Test match hundreds.
