Mohali:He may not be part of the playing XI but former Team India captain Sourav Ganguly will be present in the second Test against England on invitation from the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA).

Addressing a press conference here yesterday, PCA President IS Bindra informed that invitations have been extended to all former Indian cricket captains for the second Test and Ganguly, Kapil Dev and Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi have confirmed to be present on the occasion.

''Ganguly has informed the PCA about his arrival in Mohali after the Deodhar Trophy match in Jaipur,'' said Bindra.

Adding a touch of glamour to the occasion will be Sharmila Tagore who would accompany her husband 'Tiger' Pataudi.
