Kolkata: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly today felt "sorry" for pace bowler S Sreesanth, who was handed a life ban on charges of spot-fixing in IPL.

"If he has done it, I feel it`s the right decision. I feel sorry for him, it`s a sheer waste of talent," Ganguly said on the sidelines Bengal`s cricket coaching committee meeting.

Ganguly, who is the chairman of the committee, further expressed concern about Bengal`s inept batting ahead of the upcoming 2013-14 domestic season.

"Batting is a massive concern for Bengal," Ganguly said as the state would not get the services of regular skipper Manoj Tiwary, who is recovering from a knee surgery.

"I`ve spoken to the coach (Ashok Malhotra) regarding this. Players have to understand the situation and take up responsibility. It`s no rocket science," Ganguly said.

Bengal coaches in the senior and age-group levels will meet on September 18 and Ganguly will submit a report at the CAB.

This was the first meeting of the five-member committee formed last month.

Hiranmoy Chatterjee, Samir Dasgupta, Debabrata Das and Rupnath Roychowdhury are the other members of the committee.
