Bangalore: Chairman of the BCCIs selection committee Chandu Borde on Sunday hinted that Saurav Ganguly's captaincy might be reviewed after the One-day series against England beginning in January."It is too early to say. Let him finish his term. It is not correct to change the horse midstream," Borde told reporters when asked whether there was any move to remove Ganguly from captaincy."We want to take a look at the One-day series. After that we will sit and decide. It is worrying for us that he has not batted well. Every cricketer undergoes a patch in his career but his is a prolonged one," he said.Borde also admitted that the excellent record of the batsmen had made it difficult for selectors to drop any of them even though there had been a number of 'experiments' in the bowling department."That's the worry. They (batsmen) have excellent record. They cannot be dropped overnight. Tell me whom should we drop." Borde was also worried about the performance of Deep Dasgupta as a wicket-keeper. "He has been batting well but he needs to improve his keeping. He is working hard and I hope he will live up to our expectations." He looked satisfied with the performance of the three new medium-pacers Tinu Yohannan, Iqbal Siddiqui, and Sanjay Bangar who had been given chance in the Test series against England, saying, They had come up to our expectations."PTI
