Sourav Ganguly is currently the BCCI boss, but he’s regarded as the best captain in Indian cricket by the youngsters that played in his team. For instance, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag all 3 have gone on record and picked Dada as their favourite captain. Their choice is interesting, since India didn’t win a World Cup under Ganguly.
All 3 above-mentioned players were part of the Indian team that lifted the World Cup in 2011 under the leadership of MS Dhoni, yet they swear by the strong support they got from Dada when they needed it the most and hence their loyalties towards the Prince of Kolkata.
Therefore, when the ugly Greg Chappell-Ganguly incident played out, most of the youngsters and players of the time sided with the latter. In fact, Harbhajan went on to call the duration of Chappell’s coaching as the worst days in Indian Cricket. So when recently Greg took credit for moulding Dhoni into a great finsher, Bhajji couldn’t control himself and took a swipe at the former coach.
“I always used to challenge him if he could finish the game. There used to be a booming smile on his face, whenever he used to score the winning runs. He is definitely the best finisher the game has ever seen, ”Chappell said.
“He asked Dhoni to play along the ground coz coach was hitting everyone out the park.. He was playing different games #worstdaysofindiancricketundergreg ,” Harbhajan wrote on Twitter.
