Ganguly, not Dhoni, is the greatest Indian captain
Article by Haresh Pandya:
With the exception of the recent tours of England and Australia, where India suffered eight defeats in a row, hardly does a Test series pass without addition of a new feather in Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s cap as a captain.With two successive wins against New Zealand, he is now inching closer to Sourav Ganguly as India’s most successful Test captain.
India has tasted a record 21 triumphs (11 abroad) under Ganguly in 49 Tests. At the end of the series against the Kiwis, Dhoni’s score is 19 victories (5 overseas) in 39 Tests. Considering India’s tight schedule with more Test series to follow, it may not be very long before Dhoni finally leaves Ganguly behind.
Dhoni is at the pinnacle of his prowess and seems to be enjoying every moment of his cricket. He is equally relishing leading India. Team India has benefited immensely from Dhoni’s batting, wicket-keeping and captaincy.He is a prodigiously talented cricketer with brilliant mental gifts. There just does not appear to be a better man to captain India. Virat Kohli is there, of course, but as long as Dhoni is around, he has to take the backseat.
