Mumbai: The time has come to bid adieu to Sourav Ganguly from the Indian Premier League. Following Rajasthan Royals' crushing seven-wicket victory on Tuesday, Pune became the second team after Deccan Chargers to crash out of IPL 5, having lost nine out of 13 matches.
The early exit comes as a major disappointment for owners, Sahara India, who had put their faith behind India's most successful skipper to be an able replacement for cancer-stricken Yuvraj Singh. Declared the team's mentor, he was also entrusted with the responsibility of acting as a stand-in coach. | Related | Will Sourav Ganguly sit out of last three matches?
