Akram greatest bowler I've ever played: Ganguly
'I will come back&then take a decision'
'Srinath decides to hang his boots'
Kolkata: Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly on Friday said that he would request Javagal Srinath to play in the December tour Down Under as his side needed the services of the seasoned fast bowler to take on the formidable rivals. "I shall definitely request him to play the series. We need his services," Ganguly said here. Laying stress on a strong bowling attack, Ganguly said three pacers and two spinners would be an ideal combination against the Aussies, though the final decision rested on the selectors. "Our bowling strength should be such that the Aussies can never score 600. But our task will be easier if we can get a wicketkeeper who can open the batting," Ganguly said. He said though the Aussies are undoubtedly 'very strong', but they are not invincible. "We have to play aggressively. We must try to dominate them," Ganguly added.
