    Ganguly = Legend.. Dont u reckon

    after watching dravids use of kumble while he was captaining the indians. I have realised that Ganguly seems to know what he is doing while he was leading the indians. Personally i hate the guy, but honestly speaking he looks like a great captain and although through the media he is depicted as not having leadership qualities i believe he does. His batting is not to shabby either. Although he screwed up this series he has great technique all he needs is to work on his patience as he always chases those good length wide balls. He also seems to be a handy and intelligent medium pace part time bowler. Only if he was a great fielder maybe he could have cemented himself as a legend or is that not a requirement???

    Goes without saying that this spot shall be watched.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I pretty much agree with most of this post. He has been the main catalyst behind much of the success India have enjoyed of late. An excellent captain.

    However, his batting cannot be relieved upon and is very hit and miss, while his fielding is even worse.

    Could go down as a legendary captain, but thats about it.

    He could be the Mike Brearly of India.

    But with a test and ODI batting average exceeding 40. Which is always nice to have.
