Take inspiration from MI, says Ganguly

Mumbai, Feb 18: Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly, was glad that the recent patch up draws an end to the week long drama involving Sahara and BCCI, allowing Pune Warriors' participation in the fifth edition of IPL.

"Good thing ... There are so many players. I always felt that it would be solved and it's a good thing that it has been solved. Now we have to see what players we get and do the best," Ganguly told reporters.

The Bengal player has said Pune Warriors needs to take inspiration from Mumbai Indians as they played the last edition without seven or eight key players.

"It's T20 ... we saw Mumbai Indians winning Champions League without seven or eight of their best players. That's a hope for us. We will give our best (shot)," the former India captain said.

"It's a challenge to play with whatever side we have. It's not the Indian team that we can pick for every tour. Once you pick the IPL team, it's for two years or three years and we have to do the best we can with them," Ganguly added.

Sourav Ganguly, appointed as captain for the fifth edition of IPL, in the absence of Yuvraj Singh, who led the team in the fourth edition, said that the team would miss Yuvraj Singh, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy in the US, but at the same time his health is also equally important.

"We will miss Yuvraj Singh. He is a quality player in this format. But health is more important." Asked whether he would be leading the side in Yuvraj's absence, Ganguly said it was for the team owners to decide.

The fifth edition of the IPL is expected to start from April 4, 2012 in Chennai.
