Rajkot: "I am really disappointed, but I have no other option but to suspend Ganguly for the Rajkot match," match-referee Barry Jarman said on his decision on the Indian captain after he was reported for showing dissent in the previous match at Kanpur."Ganguly is a nice player and a good human being and I was really disappointed when he behaved like that in that match at Kanpur," Jarman added.Meanwhile, Zimbabwean captain Heath Streak too was surprised by his counter part's behaviour but was more philosophical in his assessment. "I think Saurav himself would have been regretting this and I understand that too. I do feel that as a captain he should have been more polite," he said. Zimbabwe's manager Babu Meman too was surprised and said, "I just failed to understand why he behaved like that.

There was no need for it and I think that he is such a senior player that he should set an example but not this way."Zimbabwe coach Carl Rackemann on the other hand decided not to speak on this matter and said, "I am not fit to reply on this question."Ganguly though he was available for practice asked Rahul Dravid, who is going to lead the side on Thursday, to meet the press on the ground itself. When Dravid's attention was drawn on this subject the only thing he said was, "I don't want to talk on this subject." India's coach John Wright too didn't say anything on the subject and was keen to talk about the match on the hand on Thursday.
