Bangalore: After a "frustrating" injury lay-off, skipper Sourav Ganguly on Sunday said he wants to make his comeback to the team count by leading the side from the front in the crucial remaining two matches of the cricket tri-series. Having missed action in the second Test and the first four matches of the tri-series due to an abscess in his left thigh, Ganguly is now set to join his teammates for their clash against Australia here on Wednesday. Ganguly, who arrived here on Sunday, admitted the forced lay-off had been frustrating and he missed being in the thick of things especially so as the Indians have been pushed on the backfoot after two defeats on a trot.

The team is looking up to its inspirational skipper to sail through to the final of the series on November 18 in Kolkata and coach John Wright has said the players were looking forward to Ganguly's return to the squad. Meanwhile, most of the players, including master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, have already arrived in the city for the day-night clash.
