Since Sourav Ganguly has been regarded as the best Indian cricket captain for a while, I took the liberty of writing a small guide about how to be as much like Ganguly as possible for the next time YOU captain a cricket team. Good luck.
Pre-Game: With the coin toss, it is tradition to wear your countrys cap and blazer. However since YOUR the best captain in the world, you don't need to. Instead wear every sponsors product you can find, hat, jacket, pants, gloves even a farkin hankerchief. Just as long as it is sponsered. Also make sure your always second out the the coin toss, the WHOLE CROWD can wait for YOU because YOUR important.
Batting: If your team is in danger early in the innings, then no matter what put yourself ahead of your normal position NO MATTER WHAT. Even if you have Don Bradman due in next, you MUST bat ahead of him. It is your duty as Sourav Ganguly to be as selfish with the bat as possible, ALWAYS try to be the hero.
Fielding: In the field, since you are captain, it is your duty to constantly fiddle with the field in order to delay a loss for as long as possible. Remember, your field can always be changed even if it is perfect. Especially if it is a One Day game and there is a threat of rain then it is your DUTY to hold up the game for as long as is humanly possible. Remember that your shoes can always be tied up tighter and that when you walk back to your fielding position that you must walk as SLOWLY as possible. Also if a team-mate drops a catch remember to bag him all day, even if you drop an unbelivably simple catch the very next ball THATS OK, because YOUR THE CAPTAIN.
Bowling: If your bowlers are struggling to contain the opposition batsman then bring yourself on. It doesn't matter if its the 3rd over and you have 2 excellent paceman on your team, or if its the 17th over, the pitch has as much cracks the pitch did in Banglaore and you have Harbahjan Singh AND Anil Kumble on your team, you must put yourself FIRST.
Remember, as captain of the Indian cricket team you are the best player in the world. Better than ANYONE, both in batting and bowling.
