Sourav Ganguly,the former Indian captain spoke to NDTVSports in an exclusive chat during the Champions Trophy semifinal between India and Sri Lanka in Cardiff on June 20 where he revealed he hates being compared with Dhoni and as he feels players of different era played under different situations and conditions hence cannot be compared. He also said Dhoni is a Terrific Captain and has lot of cricket in him even now ! 🙂
No matter , how much we argue and claim Dhoni is better captain than dada aka Sourav Ganguly, one thing is undeniable, there is one thing which only dada could do and no one else –During the final match of the 2002 NatWest Trophy held in Lords,England after a stunning performance by team mates Yuvraj Singh and Md Kaif , Ganguly took off his shirt in public and waved it in the air to celebrate India’s win( It was a statement to the world of cricket) and was later condemned for jeopardizing Lords protocol and cricket. No matter what, Sourav Ganguly taught Team India to stare into the eyes of the opponent and do not go by names of the opponent or the place they were playing in. Today the confidence which we see in Team India’s each and every player is a gift of Sourav Ganguly to Indian Cricket,I firmly believe.
Difference between Dhoni and Ganguly,as per me- Dhoni has attitude and Dada had attitude problem and both rock 😀
