Sachin is a Bharat Ratna: Sourav Ganguly

Former Indian cricket skipper Sourav Ganguly joined the choral group in demanding the Bharat Ratna, the country's highest civilian award, for batting Little Master Sachin Tendulkar.

"Sachin is a Bharat Ratna. There is no doubt that he should be conferred the Bharat Ratna award," Ganguly told reporters after the practice session of the KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders) in the Eden Gardens.

The KKR captain denied the observation from some quarters that his side was pathetic in the bowling department.

"On the contrary, we have a strong bowling side. We have Shane Bond, Brad Hodge, Ishant Sharma, Ajantha Mendis, Ashok Dinda, Ajit Agarkar and Lakshmi Ratan Shukla."

On the 3rd wicket keeper of the IPL franchise, the KKR skipper said it would be decided very soon.

Besides Brendon Mccullum, the New Zealand wicket keeper and batsman who is expected to join late in the tournament, KKR have Bengal's Wriddhiman Saha as their second keeper.

The decision would be taken in couple of days and third wicket keeper could be one among Deep Dasgupta, Tilak Naidu and Rohit Sabharwal.

After a catastrophic campaign in the earlier edition last year in South Africa, KKR will feature in the inaugural match against Deccan Chargers in Mumbai on March 12.
