Deposed Indian cricket skipper Sourav Ganguly on Thursday praised his successor Rahul Dravid and declared that he was prepared to play in any position and perform any role if taken back into the national squad.

"Rahul Dravid is doing a great job as captain," Ganguly told newspersonsafter a practice session.

Asked how he rated his chances of coming back to the squad in the near future, Ganguly said, "I am playing domestic cricket. I am laying stress on fitness. My past record is also there."

Asked if he was eyeing the slot of an allrounder to make a comeback to the squad, Ganguly said that he was prepared to fit into any role the team desired of him.

"I have taken 14/15 wickets in the Duleep Trophy. I also scored a hundred. I am willing to play at any position. I am prepared to perform any role that the team wants me to," Ganguly said.
