New Delhi:

Former skipper Sourav Ganguly is likely to be included in the Indian squad for the first two Tests against Australia, sources told NDTV.

The left-hander has, however, decided to call it a day at the end of the series.

The previous committee ignored Ganguly for the Irani Cup tie touted as a selection trial with Dilip Vengsarkar at the helm.

There is immense pressure on the five wise men less than a week after their appointment as India's first fully paid selectors' panel at the Cricket Board's 79th AGM in Mumbai.

The 36-year-old Bengal stalwart, who staged a spectacular entry into Tests with a debut ton at Lord's in 1996, made a storming return to the five-day game in South Africa in late 2006 after losing his place earlier that year.

The classy left-hander amassed over 1100 runs with a career-best 239 against Pakistan in Bangalore in late 2007, at a fantastic average of 61.44 which compares very favourably with his career average of 41.74 in 109 Tests.
