Thiruvananthapuram: Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly and leg-spinner Anil Kumble will be joining the Indian team for the November 12 tri-series match against Australia in Bangalore. Kumble, who opted out of the One-day match against New Zealand on November 6 following the death of his father, will be back in the team replacing Sairaj Bahutule, who was inducted as substitute. Ganguly would be back in action as he had recovered from his injury, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary S K Nair said in a release on Saturday.
Ganguly, regaining strength after a painful abscess on the left thigh, had a few days back at Kolkata expressed his desire to play in the Bangalore match. He had also had a practice session at the nets.
