During a press conference after his final Test in Nagpur, Sourav Ganguly had said that he was not yet ready for commentary because it meant “traveling all the time”. However, he will be part of the ESPN-Star Sports commentary team for the Champions League which begins on December 3. His first match behind the microphone will be between the Rajasthan Royals and the Dolphins in Bangalore.

“It’s just going to be a start,” Ganguly told the Telegraph, a Kolkata based daily. “Right now, however, I don’t intend doing commentary full-time.”

Ganguly retired from international cricket after the Test series against Australia which India won 2-0.
