Calcutta: Free from the pressures of international cricket, especially after winning the Test and One-day series against Zimbabwe at home recently, Indian skipper Saurav Ganguly gave expression to his thoughts on the domestic scenario.Speaking to reporters at the end of the first day's play in the Ranji Trophy match between Calcutta and Orissa on Thursday, Ganguly emphasised the need for preparing "bowler friendly" tracks in the country.Ganguly felt that it was "heart breaking", especially for fast bowlers, to bowl on placid wickets in the domestic game. Ganguly, who claimed his career best haul of six wickets in Ranji Trophy cricket, said, "I have always believed that more helpful tracks should be prepared. I do not know when they (BCCI) will realise it . It is really tough on the fast bowlers."Ganguly claimed that his best showing on Thursday in Ranji Trophy was due to his international exposure and experience. "Basically, I just bowled a good line and landed the ball at the right spot. Having played more cricket than most of the other boys, I used my experience to good effect," he added.
