    3. Wicketkeeping from Rahul Dravid At
    the time of Sourav’s captaincy, Team India needed a batsman who could do wicketkeeping. In such a situation, it was Sourav Ganguly who convinced Rahul Dravid, who was known as the Indian team’s wall, for wicketkeeping.

    Dravid’s wicketkeeping further improved the balance of the team. Between 2002 and 2004, in this way, Team India got such a wicketkeeper, which was no less than a boon for the team even in batting.

    selection also included Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s selection in Team India in Sourav Ganguly’s historic decisions. In fact, it was in 2004 that Ganguly asked the selectors to bet on Dhoni. He then sent Dhoni to number-3 in batting order against Pakistan.Dhoni played a big knock in this match. In the 2005 Vizag ODI International, Dhoni scored 148 runs while batting at number three.

    5. Trust on young players, victory on foreign soil
    Saurav Ganguly taught team India how to show confidence in young players. He has always been at the front for youngsters like Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. As a result these youth gave them better results.

    Not only this, Dada also instilled confidence in young cricketers that we are capable of winning outside India as well. This is the reason why India played 28 Overseas Tests under Ganguly’s captaincy, of which 11 won.
