Chennai:Swashbuckling opener Virender Sehwag, today threw his weight behind Sourav Ganguly, saying the Indian cricket captain will bounce back from his poor form and return from the English county stint as a stronger batsman.

"History and statistics say that such things happen to every batsman. Ganguly must be experiencing the same in recent times but I am sure that he will get back to his purple patch sooner than later," Sehwag, here in city for an ad shoot, told PTI.

"It is good for everybody to play in county cricket. If you are not in form, it is a great opportunity to play in county cricket where you get to play lot of matches in one month," he added.

County club Glamorgan, have claimed that they have signed Ganguly as their second overseas player although the Indian cricket board seems to be unaware of the development.

Ganguly was expected to play his first match on June 1.

On the episode of former coach John Wright, grabbing him up by his collar, Sehwag said he had no 'problem' with the New Zealander's action.

"He was upset with me because I played a stupid shot. It does not matter whether it was brotherly action or not but he was definitely angry with me and did what he thought at that time."

"Later on we discussed it and we do not have any problem with that. We talked to each other and carried on after that. I do not have any problem," he said.
