    Looks like Ganguly reads my and other CF fellow members posts.

    Sourav Ganguly, the former India captain, has said India should have different captains for Tests and limited-overs matches in order to ease the workload on MS Dhoni, who is leading in all three formats as well as keeping wicket. Following India's defeat against England at Eden Gardens, the first time they have lost back-to-back matches at home in 12 years, Ganguly said the selectors should follow the example of most countries in order to get the most out of Dhoni.

    "Every team in the world has gone with split captaincy. I am not saying the selectors should sack Dhoni and say, 'You're out'. I have always said there is too much burden on him. I think we are losing MS Dhoni as a player," Ganguly told Headlines Today, an Indian news channel. "Captaincy and your ability as a player are interlinked, I think Dhoni is a much better one-day captain than he is a Test captain.

    Ganguly has been harsher on Dhoni before. I agree with him, but I also sort of think he wants Sehwag to become captain, which would also suck

    ^:agree:

    Ganguly has his own agenda.

    All the corrupt people are gonna kill the game. Hope there comes a time when people like Kumble, Dravid and Tendulkar control the Board. That will make cricket better.

    I don't think he's corrupt (#inb4Picasso), but he is biased

    The first thing guys like them should be doing to help Indian cricket is get county contracts for Kohli and Pujara. No doubt they can find a side, if not in division 1, then division 2. I don't want the two of them to suck against the moving ball

    He is a man of integrity. That conflict of roles scam was not a big deal. Blown up by useless people. :thumbsdown:

    TBH, I didn't mean to include Ganguly in that category. By corrupt, I was referring to Srinivasan and the current gang.

    Problem with Ganguly is his bias towards certain players and that might affect his decisions if he is to occupy a powerful role.

    That won't happen with Kumble or Dravid or Tendulkar. 100% guarantee.! :agree:

    Speaking of Kumble, I went through his Wide Angle.. Didn't buy it but looked good. Some really funny moments that happened on tours and behind the scenes.

    A sample -

    Enactment of Sholay.. Sachin plays Gabbar, Kumble Thakur. Zaheer and Dhoni play Veeru and Jai.
    Also, Gambhir appears as a comical character.

    Those were damn funny. :rofl1: :rofl1: :rofl: :rofl:
