    Former captain Sourav Ganguly still wants to play one-day cricket for India despite being dropped for the triangular series in Australia.

    The 35-year-old, one of three Indians to score over 10,000 runs in one-day cricket, was passed over for the Australian tri-series despite his solid performances at test level.

    "They (the selectors) just asked me whether I wanted to continue one-day cricket," Ganguly told private television news channel Times Now.

    "I said, 'yes definitely, at least for the next 7-8 months.'"

    Looking ahead at his one-day possibilities, the left-handed batsman said: "There is the Australia series, then India go to Sri Lanka for tests and one-dayers.

    "So there are five one-dayers there and then the Champions Trophy in September and rest of the year is full of test cricket."

    Ganguly was left out by tri-series selectors after the team's first-round exit at the one-day World Cup and a surprise victory by a young squad in the Twenty20 version last year.
