Very correct statement, Rohit. Current formation of team is result of Ganguly's efforts, as @ 2002 selectors doesn't want zaheer, Yuvraj & Harbhajan in team& currently they are main strength of the team with seniors.

& because of Ganguly, Dravid was able to extend his career in one-dayers & Sehwag become opener in every form of cricket & the idea was Saurav's great punch.

Between two Ganguly is better choice, as he woked hard in formation of no.1 side.

It's Dhoni's luck that he got well-formed & well balance team.

Thanks for referral, Himanshu.

It depends on perception. Loosing one teat cannot wash away the world cup victory. The side which they have led is all about luck and side was strong even in Dada's leadership. How is better is just not a question here is it?

Saurav built the team from scratch with a media and management not always kind to him. Yet he earned the respect of his peers and opponents. Things are much better for Dhoni for he got to helm a more stable team. The bench strength is too much better for present team.

Dada was simply the best cricket captain I have seen. The poise, the pride and confidence in himself and his team, the smart captaincy, an often unnoticed pyshcological mind-game he used with his team mates and opponents likewise. Well, he stood out like a true leader.

Abishek, Pls dont take the captaincy records while determining a quality because they give out numbers which might be affected by many factors.For instance the team which was led by DADA was not a world beater.But Dhoni has this cushion.

DADA took up captaincy when Indian cricket was in the dumps inflicted with Match fixing,He with his aggression and never say die attitude brought it out.Every time i see the LORDS BALCONY SHIRT CELEBRATION,it reminds me of a man who was himself all the time,A True leader.

He taught us how to win matches,He taught us How to celebrate,He taught us how to hit back with vengeance,He taught us how to accept pain,He led us to Glory.

I would like to mention a quote made by yuvaraj here"I am even ready to die for a leader like DADA".

This explains i suppose<>

Let me tell you this: Dhoni does not impose orders because most of the guys in the team are seniors now and they very well know their roles and responsibilities.Same was not the case with DADA.

To speak out candidly Dhoni is reaping the seeds sown by DADA

Sir just compare the teams under DADA and Dhoni and on paper the one which Dhoni had is an absolute winner.It didnt require his contribution and as a result he was very cool on the field.He is also having a crucial element called luck which was hardly with DADA.

Final words Dhoni can entertain but only DADA can inspire.It is his fearless attitude and swagger that makes me say this.Hope you would agree.

Yes, he groomed the guys like Harbajan, Yuvraj, Sehwag etc during his tenure and MSD is just benefiting from the same.

It is DADA without a doubt.MSD might have brought the country many big victories including the world cup but it is DADA who lighted the torch.He gave the team an aggression which was never seen before.He showed to the world that we are not push overs or lucky freaks. MOREOVER THE SIDE WHICH DHONI IS LEADING IS FAR BETTER AND TALENTED THAN THE ONE WHICH DADA LED.SO MSD'S JOB IS MADE EASIER SINCE HE HAS VERY LITTLE WORRIES.I AM QUITE CONVINCED THAT DADA AND HIS NO FEAR ATTITUDE HAS PAVED THE WAY FOR WHAT OUR CRICKET TEAM IS TODAY.ABOVE ALL DADA WAS THE ONE WHO FOUGHT WITH BCCI TO NURTURE PLAYERS LIKE BHAJJI,YUVARAJ,DHONI,ZAHEER.

Mr. Jaygopal, Dhoni is hardly a tactician. Yes he is calm and rarely gets ruffled.

When it comes to selecting the better leader, the criteria for selection should be his individual qualities. And on that basis, MSD is definitely superior. From his calm outlook to his tactical brilliance, it is MS all the way.

Dada has all the qualities to become a successful cricketer and leader but due to his arrogance and ignorance at times he ended his career being one of the most controversial cricketer of all time. MSD is a good leader because he is a balanced character he knows when to speak and when to keep shut, he is cool calm and at the same one of the most agressive and technically sound captain. Nothing succeeds like success.

yea thats wat m saying, there's a big difference in having capability and proving ur capability and whole india knows who proved that.M still not in opposition of DADA asDADA was best because on that days he had good players but they were not match winners.and our fielding and bowling also very poor.with that team only he got many wins.

DHONI he asked selection committee i want players who can stand opposite to a running truck,so he got best young players.now dhoni had all players support.

Ganguly has got just victories to his name but MSD has the victories along with EUPHORIA around the team.

Apart from this the Time magazine has ranked Dhoni 52nd in the top 100 influential personalities of the world. Dhoni has beaten all Indians who have already made a place in the list of 100 influential personalities of the Time magazine.

Well i would say m not in an opposition of DADA as he was an indian captain once.But when we talk about leadership,dhoni knows the management very well.For the evidence u can refer the captancy records of both the captains.For that u could say that dhoni is reaping the seeds sown by dada but for doing so u must be aware of how to properly reap the seeds already sown.And Hope someone good will reap the same seed sown by dhoni in future.

Definitely Dhoni..Dhoni doesnt impose his orders on any one.. Team mates follow his orders bcoz they just know d final result of following him..So its obvious that success comes by following successfull leader in cricket.

If Leadership is inspiring people beyond your direct control, Then Dhoni wins Hands down. Sourav made people like dhoni in team. However when it comes to delegation and accepting responsibilities of misled strategies and reprimanding poor performance Dhoni never shied away. And he made so many small town boys dream of cricket.
