New Delhi, Jan 21 (UNI) A twenty seven member high power delegation of the West Bengal State Legislative Assembly today tried to meet Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar to lodge their protest against the unceremonious exclusion of former India Cricket Captain Saurav Ganguly from the forthcoming Trianglar One Day International series to be played in Australia later this month.
Addressing the media, Congress Legislative Party (CLP) Chief Dr Manas Bhuiya said, ''It is a very wrong decision and we all protest against this injustice.'' The same sentiment was expressed by the Urban Development Minister Ashok Bhattacharjee and others.

They are raising this issue as individuals, the delegation memebrs added.
