India deserves No.1 ODI ranking: Sourav Ganguly
Ex Indian skipper Saourav Ganguly Tuesday said India deserved the number one ranking in the ODIs after having played well in the last three series.
“Why not? In the last three series, they played well,” Ganguly replied when asked whether India deserved the numero uno status in ODIs.
India defeated England 3-1 in August-September, and got past West Indies 2-1 last month. The Indians have already taken an unassailable 3-0 lead over the Sri Lankans, against whom they play the fourth match of the series at the iconic Eden Gardens here Nov 13.
India are now at the third spot in ODI rankings, following South Africa and Australia. If India win at the Eden, they will climb to the first position.
Ganguly said the selectors should have chosen Manoj Tiwary in the Indian side. “I feel they should have taken him.”
