5 Great cricketers who are the product of Sourav Ganguly’s regime

5 Great cricketers who are the product of Sourav Ganguly’s regime: The former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly is renowned as the man who turned around the fortunes of Indian cricket with his aggressive and fierce attitude on the field. Ganguly always believed in giving it back to the opponents and had a swagger of his own. He had taken over the reins of Indian cricket when it had lost the faith of general public at large after as many as six players of the team were caught in the match-fixing scandal. Dada changed the image of the Indian team from a bunch of guys who were soft and nice to a team which played hard and aggressive brand of cricket.

Ganguly was able to make the team believe that it can win overseas Tests, a thing which remained out of India’s folklore of cricket for many eras and decades. He backed up the youngsters to the hilt and even didn’t hesitate in taking on the selectors for them. And now we see all those players turned out to be great servants for Indian cricket.

Today, let’s have a look at 5 Great cricketers who are product of Sourav Ganguly’s regime:

MS Dhoni is regarded as one of the greatest Indian skippers, but it was under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy that he started his career. His first international series was the tour of Bangladesh in 2004/05 in which he fared up poorly. After that, he was about to be dropped from the side for the ODI series against Pakistan but Sourav backed him and made the selectors pick him in the squad. And then MSD stood upon the faith of his skipper and played a brute knock of 148 runs at Vishakhapatnam in the series. And as they say, the rest is history. Dhoni went on to scale mammoth heights of grandeur and kudos for his nation.
