Kolkata: Despite a poor start of 17/3 for the Indians in the rain affected first test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly is determined of india being the winners of the game.

"Let me tell you one thing, India will win this Test even if they are 17/3," Ganguly said at an event when he was jokingly asked if a green-top was "deliberately" prepared to see India lose.

"I don't decide whether a team plays on green-top or not," the Cricket Association of Bengal President said.

"I could not control the rain for last two days. With rain covers and a bit of grass at the Eden, this was bound to happen. You have seen the game, you know how it is when it's overcast and dark. There's a lot of rain for two days and the wicket was under cover," Ganguly added.

Indian top batters were destroyed by the devastating spell of Lankan pacer Suranga Lakmal who bowled only 11.5 overs in the first day.

The start by the Indians has brightened the hopes of the Sri Lankans who are chasing an elusive Test win in India. India had hammered them 9-0 across three formats in a full series in Sri Lanka three months back.
