Kolkata:Former sprint queen P T Usha was keen to meet Indian cricket skipper Sourav Ganguly and request him to use his persuasive power in ensuring a flow of sponsors in the neglected sporting disciplines.

''As a sportsman I want to congratulate him for leading India to spectacular win in Pakistan. At the same time, I will request him to make efforts so that disciplines like athletics, which have not received much favour from sponsors, get corporate support,'' Usha said.

''Today, no sports can thrive without support from sponsors. But so far, only cricket has been lucky,'' she said.

Usha, however, said that she had sent a message to him but was yet to receive a response.
