Kolkata: Indian skipper Saurav Ganguly on Friday predicted a bright future for young pacer Tinu Yohannan, saying that the lanky Kerala cricketer had the talent to make it big.''Yohannan has lot of talent. He will definitely shine if he works hard,'' Ganguly told reports on arrival in Kolkata for a day's visit after handing a 10-wicket drubbing to the touring England side in the first Test at Mohali on Thursday.Yohannan, the first Test cricketer from Kerala, had returned match figures of four for 131 on his debut at Mohali.

Ganguly, who has returned home mainly to spend time with his 34-day old daughter, was all praise for off spinner Harbhajan Singh and leggie Anil Kumble who spun India to victory in the Mohali Test, who partially restored the national team's prestige after its disastrous outing in South Africa.''Both of them are class bowlers. The English players were all at sea against the spin of Kumble in the second innings,'' he said. Asked why India only managed to win on home soil while putting up pathetic performances in other countries, the Indian skipper said, ''What is important is that we have won the Test.''Brimming with confidence and looking relaxed after the Mohali win, he said that India would now go all out to win the remaining two tests. ''But it would be improper to predict the outcome of the matches. All I can say is that we will go all out to win.''PTI
