GangulyKolkata: India need the experience of Sourav Ganguly for the series against Australia, said former cricketer Mohinder Amarnath.

Former Indian expressed hope that the National selectors would consider Sourav Ganguly for the upcoming home series against Australia.

“Just because he (Ganguly) failed in one series does not mean he should not be considered for another series," he observed. Amarnath felt the Indian batsmen failed to negotiate successfully the Sri Lankan spinners. He said the Aussie spinners are not in the same class as Lankan spinners.
When asked about India's prospects in the coming series, Amarnath said he was hopeful that the batsmen who did not do well against Sri Lanka would perform at home.

To buttress his remarks, Amarnath pointed out Australia did not have the spin strength which Sri Lanka had.

"Indian batsmen got out to good spin bowling in Sri Lanka. Australia do not have the same spin artillery that Sri Lanka have," said Amarnath.
