Ganguly welcomes Paes' decision to play in Olympics
ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu
KOLKATA, June 30(Agencies): Former India captain Sourav Ganguly today welcomed the decision by Leander Paes to participate in next month's Olympics after threatening to pull out for being paired with lower-ranked Vishnu Vardhan.

"It's a very good news that at the end of the day, he will be competing at the Olympics. He has shown the right attitude," Ganguly said.

Asked whether the treatment meted out to Paes was somewhat similar to his infamous spat with former coach Greg Chappell, Ganguly said, "The two are different issues. It's unfair to compare both."

The AITA was forced to bow down to Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna's wishes after they refused to play with Paes.

And about the Board's firm stance on the contentious Decision Review System, Ganguly said, "DRS is not foolproof yet."

Citing the example of Ian Bell's bizzare run-out decision in a Test against India last year, Ganguly said, "The Board's stance is valid."
