Mumbai: Despite calls for his head getting louder every day, Pune Warriors India skipper Sourav Ganguly is not really worried. Denying the reports of him being asked to step down, the Bengal cricketer said, I am still the captain. I am the captain for the whole season, and those are just reports."
The former India skipper though, admitted that his form hasn't been up to the mark. "It has been patchy. I have played well at times, I haven't played well at times, that's the way T20 format is. There are quite a few players who haven't played well, but Sourav Ganguly gets criticised more than the others, that has been the trend for the last 15 years," the southpaw added.

Give him the examples of Deccan Chargers skipper Kumar Sangakkara and Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Daniel Vettori, who both opted to drop themselves in the IPL-V, and Dada is ready with the explanation. "They are both foreigners, and you can play only four foreigners in a team. That's the reason why they dropped themselves. Vettori dropped himself for Muralitharan, which is not a bad choice," Ganguly pointed out. And any plans of stepping down after this season? "Let's finish this first, I haven't yet thought about it," the Prince of Kolkata added. (Also Read: IPL 5 will be Ganguly's last as a player: Subrata)
