did ganguly got out wantonly against srilanka?

Hi, my suspicion stems from the fact that he got out in the most unnatural way, something which he never does usually, playing that shot. Also, if you see his earlier innings against bermuda, his strike rate was around 80 only, whereas other had more than 100. Similarly, although he is scoring after his return, his strike rate is less than 80. Do you think he just wants to occupy the crease, score runs and be in the team but doesn't want it to win to the extent when it was under his captaincy, forcing the selectors to discuss his captaincy again? And keep in mind, he failed in the match that mattered most since his return, against srilanka. I am an ardent fan of ganguly but could not help wondering about this. Share your views. Thanks.

Dear friend I do not share your views.India collectively as a team failed to lift their spirit from the word go.A magnificiant toss and having faith on your batting our captain and coach should have gone for batting.Secondly why compare any body's innings or centuries against Bermuda?Even Bangladesh restricted them less than what India allowed them to score. As per Ganguly,observing him for last so many years,it was clearly a case where in he was asked to stablise one side of wicket while Utthapa,Sehwag,Yuvraj,dhoni was to charge.If you can see the replay where in he was caught briliantly by Murali,he did hit over the fielders but not that attackingly which is his style.So a catch well taken cannot be doomed as his failure.And as per his most important match,well that was against Sri lanka where he did score. I am sure many will agree on this point.Pleae share

In my opinion after ganguly come again to team India he was the only player who play for the team.But in match with srilanka he did not score well.Lost of that game was fault of all players of India. Also yuvraj singh played well in earlier matches but failed in that match.
