Captaincy? No, thanks, says Ganguly

Regaining the team's captaincy is not a priority for Sourav Ganguly who says he just wants to concentrate on his game and win matches for India at the moment.
Ganguly said it was inappropriate to talk about a change in captaincy as the World Cup was round the corner. “I am not in the race for captaincy, at least at the present time. I think we all should back Rahul and we should not even talk about these things when the World Cup is just two months away,” said Ganguly. “My mission is just to perform and be a part of the winning team. I will try and play well under pressure if I go to the World Cup, that is if I am included in the World Cup squad,” he said.
Ganguly said he would like to regain his opening slot in the batting order but would go with whatever the team decides. “It is for the team management to decide but if you see my record, I have played almost 250 matches as an opener” Ganguly said in a TV interview.
