Match Notes

  • Ganguly happy with bowlers' performance

    Sourav Ganguly has praised the bowlers, Irfan Pathan in particular, for an impressive performance that gave India victory by an innings and 90 runs

  • 'I am a better bowler now than I was in 2001'

    Harbhajan Singh, who has just become the fastest Indian bowler to reach 200 Test wickets, says he is a better bowler now than when he bowled India to their breathtaking series win over Australia in 2000-01.

  • Ganguly keeps his counsel

    Sourav Ganguly refused to comment on speculation about a rift between himself and Greg Chappell

  • India sweep to innings victory

    India romped to victory by an innings and 90 runs and go 1-0 up in the two-match series against Zimbabwe

  • The season of discontent

    People who have followed Sourav Ganguly's moves over the years will know that he is not one who says things without knowing their ramifications
