Team India suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of the Proteas in their third game of the Super 12 stage, breaking their winning streak in the T20 World Cup. While several experts have questioned the Indian top order after their failure on a spicy surface in Perth, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly backed Rohit Sharma's men to make it through to the semis and hoped that they make it to the final of the tournament in Australia.

Sourav Ganguly stepped down from his role as BCCI president after his tenure ended last month. Ganguly, who led India to the 2003 World Cup final, backed the Indian team to make the finals of this year's T20 World Cup, suggesting that the team has lost just one game and are in a good state with everyone performing well.

"India only lost one match. India will qualify. Everyone is doing good. India will qualify, I hope. I am hopeful that India will play finals. Let them qualify, and after that they will play last two games. That can be anyone's game," the former BCCI president said speaking at the Cricket Association of Bengal's Annual General Meeting on Monday.

'Not difficult to organise World Cup'- Sourav Ganguly feels the new CAB administration is in capable hands

The former Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president also extended his wishes to elder brother Snehasish Ganguly, who was elected the new CAB president unanimously. The CAB was given to the new administration on Monday, October 31. The former Indian skipper reckoned that the administration had appointed the right people for the job, who are capable of organizing the matches for next year's 50-over World Cup in the country.

"This is the new team to lead CAB. All of them are very much experienced. We hope they will do good. I don't have to give any suggestions to them. They all know what to do. They will do good. Next year there is World Cup. Not difficult to organise World Cup," the former CAB president added.
