Sourav Ganguly disappointed at Dinda, Tiwary not getting selected

In spite of hitting a fine 93 in a practice match against visiting England, Manoj Tiwary did not find favour with the new national selection committee headed by Sandeep Patil, which on Monday announced the Indian team for the first two Tests. On the other hand, Dinda was the highest wicket taker in last year's domestic season.

Kolkata: Former Team India captain Sourav Ganguly on Monday expressed his disappointment at pacer Ashok Dinda and middle order bat Manoj Tiwary not getting selected for the first two Tests of the forthcoming home series against England and said he would have picked both as a selector.

"It is disappointing to find Dinda and Tiwary are not in the squad. Dinda's selection was important. No player in the country is more deserving than Tiwary and Dinda," said Ganguly.

"They have always performed well whenever they got the opportunity. But neither of them know when they will get the next chance in spite of doing well," he said.
