Ganguly to play Ranji Trophy to prepare for IPL

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is set to play in the Ranji Trophy for his state side Bengal, in a bid to attain top form and fitness ahead of IPL 2011.
He will turn out in the match against Tamil Nadu that begins in Chennai on December 1.
“Even last year I played Ranji Trophy mainly to stay match-fit for the IPL,” Ganguly told ESPNcricinfo.
“This year again I want to keep myself in form for the IPL.” Ganguly retired from the international game in 2008, but continued to make sporadic appearances in the first-class scene, in addition to being an integral part of Kolkata Knight Riders’ plans in the IPL.
He said he would decide how many games he would play this first-class season based on Bengal’s position going forward.
Going into the fifth round of the league phase, Bengal are fifth out of the eight teams in Group A.
Ganguly’s return will bolster the team that is likely to be without a few of its first-choice players for the potentially tough match against Tamil Nadu.
Wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha will be unavailable since he is away on India duty, while reserve keeper Shreevats Goswami is down with viral fever.
