Ganguly's Penalty Reduced

In a partial relief to Sourav Ganguly, ICC Disputes Resolution Commissioner Justice Albie Sachs on Thursday reduced his ban from six ODIs to four, raising the possibility of his participation in the tri-series in Sri Lanka. This decision means the Indian captain can now play in the tri-series as he has already sat out two matches and will only have to miss another couple of games. As Indian cricket selectors had chosen Ganguly as a provisional member of the team, he could potentially be back in action in India's third one-day international against Sri Lanka at Dambulla on Wednesday.

Sourav Ganguly will play under Rahul Dravid’s captaincy in the Lanka tri-series.
