Kolkata: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly said off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who has been dropped for the upcoming Australia tour, will make a comeback sooner than later.

"He is a talented player and one of the best spinners we have. Getting dropped is a part and parcel of the game. Many great players too have been dropped. He will surely make a comeback sooner than later," Ganguly told IANS on Saturday.

Ganguly said star batsman Yuvraj Singh, who too has been dropped from the team, will also make a quick comeback.

Harbhajan and Yuvraj were not included in the 17-man Test squad announced for the Australian tour.

"It is only a matter of time before Yuvraj walks into the team. Some had written him off just before the World Cup. But he proved his critics wrong by becoming the Player of the World Cup. He will again be back with a bang," added Ganguly.

Harbhajan and Yuvraj were not included in the 17-man Test squad announced for the grueling Australian tour, beginning on December 26 in Melbourne, followed by three other matches in Sydney (January 3-7), Perth (January 13-17) and Adelaide (January 24-28).
