'Lot of changes in Indian team if we lose at Eden'
Tuesday 27 November 2012

Suggesting that Indian skipper M.S. Dhoni should not opt for a turner in the coming Test match here against England, former skipper Sourav Ganguly said there "could be lot of changes" in Indian cricket if the home side lost at Eden Gardens.

 

"Dhoni should not seek a turner. If the ball turns, the England spinners will create problems for the Indian batsmen. And if India lose two back to back Tests then there will be lot of changes in Indian cricket," he said.

India went down by ten wickets in the second Test of the ongoing series inside four days at Mumbai, with English spinners Monty Panesar and Graeme Swann taking 16 wickets between them.

Regarding Sachin Tendulkar, who is yet to be among runs in the series, Ganguly said: "Yes, his reflexes have gone down. But that is bound to happen with age. But what I feel is that Tendulkar is out of form and needs runs.

"I want to earnestly believe that he will get runs in the two remaining Tests".

The talismanic former Indian left hander said it was for Tendulkar, and not for the selectors, to decide when he will quit international cricket.
