Many times we have seen that comparisons are drawn between the two players or skippers such as between MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli or MS Dhoni and Sourav Ganguly, etc. Well, the former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag who was known for his destructive batting style during his playing days is pretty clear about who is better among MS Dhoni and Sourav Ganguly as a captain in his opinion.
While speaking on a YouTube show “13 Jawab Nahi” which is hosted by RJ Raunak, Viru paaji says that they both are great if we talk about captaincy but Sourav Ganguly is the best of the two as it is he who has built the team from the scratch, brought new players in the team, made a new unit and taught everyone to win matches overseas. Sehwag added that under Ganguly’s captaincy, the Indian team drew some test matches overseas while also attained victory in several others.
As per Viru, MS Dhoni was quite lucky in a sense that he got the chance to lead which was built and nurtured by Sourav Ganguly.
Talking about his favourite ground in India, Sehwag says that he loves Mohali because whenever he stepped on that ground, he got the feeling that he would certainly score runs over there. Sehwag also reveals that one more reason for loving Mohali is that there are huge sofas so one can relax on them even if he gets out. He also talks about his favourite ground abroad which is Melbourne as he likes the food over there and experiences the same feeling of scoring runs for sure as he steps on the field.
Virender Sehwag played 104 test matches, 251 ODIs and 19 T20Is in which he scored 8586, 8273 and 394 runs, respectively. Moreover, the Nawab of Najafgarh scored 38 centuries and 72 fifties in his international career. He also played 104 IPL matches in which he scored 2728 runs.
