New Delhi, Oct 7 (ANI): Indias former captain Sourav Ganguly said today that, at the end of the upcoming four-Test series against Australia, he would retire from international cricket.

Ganguly said, I have decided to quit and told my team mates about it. Australia series will be my last series.

K Srikkanth, chairman of selectors, said that Ganguly had made the right decision.

Srikkanth said, Ganguly wanted to play with a free mind and now he can.

Ganguly has been Indias most successful cricket captain.

While answering to a question that the selectors had made a compromise with his selection in the team, Ganguly replied ”absolutely not”.

He also dismissed suggestions that his inclusion in India’’s 15-member squad for the first two Tests against Australia was part of a compromise formula to give him the opportunity to retire gracefully. (ANI)
