Kolkata: Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly on Monday welcomed the national selectors' decision to recall off-spinner Harbhajan Singh for the first two Tests of the upcoming series against Australia.

"It's a good decision to bring him back into the side. I've always been hopeful of Bhajji. But it's the skipper (MS Dhoni) whether he would play in the XI," Ganguly said at Eden Gardens after the CAB's working committee meeting.

Asked about Gautam Gambhir's omission, Ganguly said, "It's normal to be left out when you're not doing well. But I'm confident he would do well to make a comeback."
