New Delhi: Sourav Ganguly is all set to quit international cricket if he is not selected for the upcoming Australia series. Indian test squad for the first two tests will be announced on October 1.

If the Sourav to chose to retire, he would be the first of India's 'fab five' to call it a day. The other seniors Tendulkar, Dravid and VVS Laxman are also under pressure ahead of the upcoming Australia series.
 Ganguly"s mind is made up. He said there is no point in trying to make yet another comeback after this," said a source close to Ganguly.

Interestingly, in the two years since South Africa and Ganguly's spectacular return from the wilderness, he has played 21 Tests, making 1667 runs at a very respectable 45.05, which is higher than his Test career average of 41.02.
According to the selectors, “everyone who"s played first class cricket" was in line for a Test call up. But Ganguly will probably be battling for a berth alongside the much younger Yuvraj Singh and S. Badrinath. And if the new selectors are looking to begin the process of transition, he is where they will likely start.
