British Parliament honored BCCI President Sourav Ganguly as a former India captain on July 13. "They contacted me six months ago. They do this award every year and I got it," said Ganguly. The Indian cricket star was commemorated on the same date, July 13, in 2002, when he led India to a Natwest final victory, and precisely 20 years later, on the same day, in the same city, London.
Virender Sehwag was asked to choose the best Indian captain title among Sourav Ganguly and MS Dhoni. He chooses- Sourav Ganguly! Ganguly was an aggressor versus MS Dhoni, often called the Captain Cool. Sehwag, who has played under both captains' revealed how Dhoni had an advantage over Ganguly, who had to develop the team from scratch. Thus he said, "Ganguly held the upper hand for the best captain."
