India a safe country to play in: Ganguly

Posted By: Staff

Kolkata, Mar 12: Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly on Thursday, Mar 12 said that as far as he was concerned India was a safe country to play in and was hopeful that the second edition of the Indian Premier League(IPL) would take place without any problems.

On the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls coinciding with IPL fixtures, Ganguly said it was for the Home Ministry and the IPL authorities to take a decision regarding dates if required.

The Kolkata Knight Riders captain said the recent attacks on the Sri Lankan cricketers in Pakistan was unfortunate, but it did not mean that cricket matches should be forgone in India on grounds of security concerns.

Speaking to the reporters at the launch of a motor cycle in Kolkata, Ganguly said that the present Indian side is good and the most important thing is that the team is now playing well overseas.
