Do Statistics Lie ?

I don't think so. Then, why is Ganguly not in the Indian one-day team? Take a look at these statistics for the last 35, 50, 75 and 100 matches respectively:

Last 35 ODIsLast 50 ODIs Last 75 ODIsLast 100 ODIs

Agreed that many of Ganguly's runs might have been scored against the so-called minnows like BL and Zimbabwe. However, if the above statistics are not a contention for selection, then I don't know what is (link from Political Blogs).

Update: I am wrong on this one; a search on the last 20 ODIs would reveal a clear disparity.
