I want to take the game forward, says Ganguly

Kolkata: Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly was given a hero's welcome on Tuesday after he returned to Kolkata for the first time since retiring from international cricket.

Thousands of people waited at the airport to get a glimpse of Bengal's biggest cricket superstar.

Ganguly did not reveal his future plans but said that he would be involved in some way with the game.

"We will have to wait and see. I haven't thought about it yet. I am sure there will be a lot of opportunities to do some thing in which I will contribute to the game. I will make sure the game goes forward," Ganguly said.

He also did not confirm or deny if he would take up commentary.

"We will see. At the moment no because it takes a lot of travelling and i at the moment I don't want to do that," he said.

India's Test win against Australia in Nagpur this week was Ganguly's last match in India colours and the country's most successful captain went out in style scoring 85 in the first innings.
