Sourav Ganguly praises MS Dhoni
In his autobiography -- 'A Century is Not Enough', Sourav Ganguly has revealed what all he has gone through as a player, his life as a cricketer and more.Talking about Dhoni, Ganguly, said he is one of India's best captains and wished he had Dhoni in the 2003 World Cup team which ended as runners-up after losing the final against Australia in Johannesburg.I was impressed with MS Dhoni from day one," Ganguly wrote in his autobiography.Dhoni made his India debut under Ganguly in an ODI against Bangladesh at Chittagong in 2004.
Ganguly believed in giving chance to youngsters and he even gave up his batting positions to fit in a player. After a few poor performances, Dhoni proved his worth with a thunderous 148 against Pakistan and then a few months later blasted his way to 183 against Sri Lanka.
Dhoni was later named as India captain for the inaugural World Twenty20 in 2007 in South Africa. He guided a young Indian side to the title after India defeated Pakistan by five runs in the final.Almost four years later, Dhoni played one of the memorable knocks of his life scoring 91 not out off 78 balls as India created history by winning their second World Cup in 2011.
Dhoni is the only captain in cricket's rich history to win all the ICC trophies.And he has made a remarkable name for Himself.
