Kolkata: Dogged by a long run of poor scores in international outings, Indian skipper Saurav Ganguly has immersed himself in practice here ahead of the one day series against England beginning next week.Ganguly, who totalled only 68 runs in the just-concluded three Test series against the same touring side, on Monday practised at the net for one-and-half hour at the Eden Gardens, keenly watched by a number of his young admirers.The stylish left-hander had a long session with the bat and faced four rookie bowlers specially brought to the ground to give him practice with the willow.Ganguly also turned his arm, in a bid to tone up his skills with the red cherry for a long time, clearly indicating his determination to silence critics who have recently taken him apart his marathon dismal performance.Ganguly, looking cheerful, also obliged autograph hunters, though he refused to speak to the Press.
