Cricketers have to be role models - Ganga

From squeaky white flannels, it took Daren Ganga six years to don the black gown. The Caribbean cricketer graduated in law from the University of London recently, amidst all his cricketing travels, if not travails. “An interest in the rights of a person drew me to the profession. I was also influenced by my school teacher father. Besides, law intrigued me from a young age,” said the Trinidad and Tobago skipper shortly before the launch of the Nokia Champions League qualifiers in Hyderabad.
