BBC Interview with Ganguly

I quite enjoyed this little BBC interview with Sourav Ganguly the other day. The one thing even I, a known detractor, have always given the man credit for, is his sheer bloody-minded determination. And this interview displays plenty of it. Certainly he exudes nervousness when quizzed persistently about the Chappell relationship, and some of his tics and gestures even hint at dishonesty. Yet you can't help but admire his dogged belief that he can get back into the Indian setup, and what's more, that he is fully worthy of a place in the line up. Would that all cricketers had that sort of self-belief.
