Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has made several revelations in his new book, ‘A Century Is Not Enough’, as the legendary left hander opened up on a lot of controversies that surrounded his storied career.
Ganguly commented on MS Dhoni and praised India’s world cup winning skipper. Dada even regretted not having Dhoni in the 2003 World Cup squad, as his dynamic batting abilities could have been extremely useful for the team in South Africa.
Dada has now complemented Virat Kohli’s captaincy style, as he is a huge fan of the current Indian skipper. Kohli’s on-field aggression and passion is similar to Ganguly, as both men share a fierce will to win and not just compete on the field.

“What Virat Kohli has done for MS Dhoni is a learning experience for everyone. Not many times in teams do current captains look after the former captains like this. There have been times when former captains have been pushed aside.
“But Kohli, that’s why for me, is such a fantastic leader. He creates a team, he builds a team and he takes everyone along. Look at the faith he has in Dhoni, in Rohit Sharma, in Shikhar Dhawan and in Hardik Pandya. So, I keep saying as long as Kohli as leader of Team India, I have got a lot of hopes from this side” Ganguly was quoted saying to India Today.
“Five-match Test series in England with Virat Kohli finishing 2-1, 3-1 or 3-2 will be what this team should be wanting. And for me who is looking from outside it is this team which is got the capability,” he added.
