For the past two years, after stepping down from Indian Captain Ganguly was not treated properly and he was denied at all occasions.He was dropped from the Indian team for several times.But the Dada came back strongly with his bat and showed the World that he is still fit to play International Cricket.Even though his handful performances for India, due to some Internal Politics going on in Indian Cricket has made him to announce his retirement.However he also said that he will continue playing for Kolkata KnightRiders.
