Kanpur: India would in most probability be boosted by the return of skipper Saurav Ganguly when its take on England in the fourth One-day International on Monday.Coach John Wright on Saturday said Ganguly would hopefully be back in the side for Monday's game after missing the third One-dayer in Chennai on Friday due to a hamstring injury. The MRI scan on the skipper had been found to be okay though physiotherapist Andrew Leipus is keeping a close watch on his injury. Leipus, however, refused to provide any details on Ganguly's recovery.Meanwhile, Kanpur is all geared up for hosting the fourth One-dayer, the ninth at this venue, and all the tickets have been sold out despite a hike in their prices. The two teams arrived here on Saturday by road from Lucknow and preferred to have rest at their hotels.Local star Mohd Kaif, who was included in the team for the remaining three One-dayers in place of V V S Laxman, was expected to join the team only on Sunday. Kaif, who was in Cuttack playing a Ranji Trophy match against Orissa when his inclusion was announced on Saturday, will reach here from Delhi on Sunday.Both teams will have net sessions on Sunday with England taking the field in the morning followed by India in the afternoon. The umpires on Saturday inspected the pitch here and expressed their satisfaction. The pitch looks to be a good batting track and groundsman Chhote Lal expected the match to be a high scoring one.
