”Brazil is my favourite team but I am a fan of Messi. I will look forward to Messi. He’s yet to win a World Cup. It’s going to be a big World Cup for him,” Sourav Ganguly quoted as per the lines on Cricket Country. It is also learnt that Sourav Ganguly is planning to make a visit to Russia for the final clash of the World Cup 2018.

On Arjun Tendulkar’s selection:

Sourav Ganguly furtherly wished his hearty congratulations to the son of Sachin Tendulkar, Arjun Tendulkar who made it to Indian U19 team which is travelling to Sri Lanka. Though the nepotism is being headlined on many channels, the stats of Arjun Tendulkar shows his worth as a player. Ganguly conceded that he hasn’t seen the game of Arjun but he wishes him a good luck.

”Lot of best wishes to him. I have never seen him play. I hope he does well,” he said at the Eden Gardens. On India’s tour to England, he added ”I’m very hopeful that India will win in England. The way they have played the ODI series in South Africa if they are able to hold back the momentum they will absolutely win.”

However, the above lines clearly show that Sourav Ganguly is very confident in clinching the series against England. He also asked Virat Kohli to just keep playing for 6-7 years without making an eye on any awards or rewards.
