Kolkata:Amidst reports of uncertainty over his participation in the upcoming Challenger Cricket Series, Sourav Ganguly today refused to give any clear indication about the seriousness of his elbow injury.

Ganguly's participation in the country's premier limited overs tournament had come under a cloud after he met a leading orthopaedic surgeon in the city yesterday and got an MRI scan done on his injured right elbow.

The left-handed batsman, who suffered the injury during a warm-up game on the tour of Zimbabwe, declined to give a reply to a question whether he would take part in the series to be held in Mohali from October 10 to 13.

"I am not going to say anything on the Challenger now," he told reporters at the Cricket Association of Bengal headquarter where he had come to attend a condolence meeting for his maternal grandfather.

Cricket Board officials also did not give any clue about the position on Ganguly's problem.

BCCI Joint Secretary Gautam Dasgupta said that he had not received any information about Ganguly's non availability for the series which will serve as a selection trial for the One-day series against Sri Lanka.

Ganguly had yesterday met a city orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Kalyan Mukherjee to seek his advice on the injured right elbow.

When contacted, Mukherjee refused to divulge any details saying, "whatever you have to ask, you ask Sourav."

Even Ganguly's family sources were not forthcoming on the subject. "Only Sourav can tell you whether he is playing or not," his father Chandi Ganguly said.
