Ganguly Vs. Dhoni

A comparison between the two great captains of Indian cricket.

Comments (118)|73 Liked It

I feel that Sourav Ganguly was a much better captain than the current captain of India. I have many reasons to prove my statement. They are as follows:

  1. Current captain is not at all helpful to the players. He never spoke in favor of his players when they were targeted by media and cricket council. He could not protect them from the ban they had to face.
  2. His form is no good as compared to Sourav Ganguly captain.
  3. He is no more a match winner.
  4. His wicket keeping is very poor.
  5. He is very selfish and will perform when he wants.
  6. He is not a type of captain who can face challenges boldly.
  7. He is not aggressive.
  8. He can’t handle pressure situation.
  9. He can’t create a fear in the minds of opponent.
  10. He is busy making money.

5) Why India Beat Australia: If you are a fan of the Indian cricket team and criticize Australia, then you should know your team and the opponent.

6) Sri Lanka Strategy Against India: Of the whole Indian team, there are only three players that can thwart the effort of Sri Lanka to win the match. Check these three out and get to know their strategies.

    very good comedy abhay

    Ganguly definitely is the better among the two

    He has many acheivements to his name

    Dhoni doesnt even deserve the right to compare him with the gr8 ganguly

    captain does not win the match, but team does. and Mr.dhoni has good team, in terms, these players are young, good fielders, good all rounders. and these players has responded well in crunch situations also. on the contrary, ganguly took over the captaincy when team was in trouble. so he is big time better as captain. Mr. dhoni has looooong way to go…when ur stars are shinning, you get the things which u don even dream off. same thing is happening bout Mr.dhoni. for example, he got khelratna award. he is the only cricketer after THE GREAT GREAT SACHIN TENDULKAR who has got it.(there is no kapil dev, no sunil gavaskar in this list)….strange!! hard luck DADA ur stars r not shinning….

    this comment was from bengali not from hidustani, or a cricket fan.they can comment ganguly shoud b captain for football hockey basketball. who understand cricket they know dhoni is better than ganguly in one yr letc see another 5 yrs then time will tell people will forget ganguly in captaincy matter.

    Had he not been deterred with the, Indian, captain title Ganguly would have been next only to Sachin in terms of all cricket records. He was almost par in terms of the number of ODI centuries with Tendulkar before he took up his captaincy.

    Though the captaincy took a toll on his sublime batting form, his acheivement as a captain is in terms of marvels.

    Further I sincerely would advise everyone to stop this stupidity of comparing some kids against the all-time great..

    mr shiva…ganguly was also a kid now he is its a natural thing that dhoni is now kid..and he have to when u r seeing dhoni as a kid then u hav to see ganguly as a budha and next to commentator like sunil gavaskar…so no one is all time great..

    God, u guys are stupid.. if anybody watched the match today.. Dhoni gave the reins to ganguly. this shows Dhoni’s humility and ganguly’s experience that led the team to win today.
    they have played with only a few players in common and both are great in their own way.. dhoni is the future and ganguly is the past. they have both played a role in this team, and are both INDIANS.

    and people who try to create differences are no better than Raj Thakarey and Osama Bin Laden.

    Dhoni is far better a player and a captain… u say he got good team.. I’d like to remind Ganguly’s supporters.. after ODI world cup debacle… our 3 heros’(Tendulkar, Dravid… and DADA huh) confidence was so low that they withdrew from T20 world cup. It was Dhoni and ONLY Dhoni who lead India to victory. He transform his aggression into fearless confident team member…. he is very decent level headed captain and his aggression is not for show off…. he doesnot like taking shirt out and swirling…

    Can’t compare them since Ganguly has more encounters under his belt and Dhoni is still in a grooming phase yet i can speculate he’s going to do better and better in terms of captaincy and batting as well …………Ganguly is well over his era , Dhoni has a midas touch and have led India to some inevitable triumphs , so did Ganguly when he used to be the tamer ……….Hence the expression is BOTH ARE EMPEROR TO THEIR EMPIRE ………

    I find this very funny. We are comparing someone who is past his prime against someone who has started his career just 4 years back. I am sure the same people criticizing Dhoni praised him sky high when he scored that 183 in India. Do we remember how he played till earlier thois year by rotating strike rather than hitting every ball he was famous for? Does anyone remember how he got India to with the 20/20 World Cup by remaining calm! Does anyone for that matter remember how he boldly got a new young team for 20/20 and then got them to perform with no experience? Who are we comparing with whom? When Saurav took over the team was talented but not a good unit. He brought th eunit together but then also saw to it that he remained in the limelight. How can we forget how he controlled Indian cricket along with Dalmiya. When Dhoni took over he put together a raw team to win the World Cup . Luck does matter but so does talent. LAST LETS REMEMBER WHO SUGGESTED DHONI TO BE ELEVATED TO A CAPTAIN. SACHIN HIMSELF!! WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?Dhoni has the team behind him and he has the respect of th eseniors as well…In all this makes him a man to watch and if he keeps his head cool he will definitely be the most successful captain ever…..When he has a 8-1 field for this match everyone cribbed in foreign media about defensive tactics. But What did Ponting say about that? India played to their plan and the tactics won them the match . Maybe we were not patient enough ……That speaks for itself in terms of Dhoni’s brain and how he keeps his calm ….Way to go guys but my money is with Dhoni!!!!!

    Thanks Saurav, u r a cricket God!! All the best Dhoni.!! :) Cheers India..!! :)

    Dhoni’s is intelligent, and very cool. He is not so talented as Ganguly as a batsman but he’s ranked as number 1 batsman in ODI currently. Proves what a brain he has. His application is brilliant. Ganguly was the best captain of India but I think Dhoni will be better than the Best. Hats of to Ganguly. And cheers to Dhoni.

    Posted November 11, 2008 at 2:26 am

    i am not saying ganguly was a bad captain…but i feel dhoni is a 100 times better captain and also a better batsmen than ganguly….i can say this a 1000 times….ganguly is a flop when wickets are tumbling at the other end…on the other hand dhoni is a batsmen who is a hit most of the time in such example is the second innings of nagpur test…

    dhoni is simply powerful..he can mould any attack when ever he wants…he is the second gilchrist…ganguly is a lazy idiot…his fielding is so pathetic..even an under16guy can do much better fielding than ganguly…

    what chappell did to him he totally deserved it…and about ganguly winning the 2001 series…it was luck..vvs laxman and rahul dravid played the innings,harbajan got the wickets…what did this dummy do..simply took all the praises..

    about 2003 world cup…it was another luck that india came till there..kenya in the semi finals..if it was australia in the semifinals ..ganguly’s pants would be torn was sachin tendulkar who got them till there..and if ganguly was a real batsmen..he should have played the 2003 finals like a champion..but that idiot had alrady lost it when ricky had hit 140..if it was dhoni i was sure india would have chased the target of 350..

    abd pakistan was new bowler irfan pathan who should be praised not ganguly……..

    Almost everybody over here are mindless fellows….U can never compare one great with another upcoming great!!!!! Both have there plus and minus. Both have some uniqueness in their approach to captaincy and that makes them grt.
    Never try to create regionalism within India like Raj Thakrey, who is the greatest terrorist India has ever faced.
    Here only cheap fans of Ganguly or Dhoni are speaking, not the fans of the game CRICKET… “It is a team game not any individual’s paradise.”
    All these goes to show how narrow minded we Indians are, never gives the due credit to the legends who have shaped the Indian Cricket.

    Even a 2 year old kid would say Ganguly is great batsman as well as captain…..and Dhoni is BIG BANG GEM
    But please for GOD’s sake DO NOT COMPARE the two….it sounds like somebody’s GIRLFRIEND has dumped him thats why taking out his frustration….
    Why Ganguly??? Why Dhoni??
    If theres any other comments below that is actually derogatory to anyone… would yourself know what you are??
    Comparing these 2 means like you are comparing your father, who might be a big entrepreneur, to another of your friends father, who is actually made already established company No.1 in the world,
    There is no comparision between the two
    Ganguly was the person who started the legacy and Dhoni is taking it forward that Ganguly dreamt of…..
    Only idiots who have no time to pass copmare…
    Frustooo comparers….
    If I have chance I will actually sue the person who started this idiotic topic…but m a common man who enjoys good cricket
    Anyone enjoying cricket and knows what the spelling of cricket is will watch the excting times ahead for TEAM INDIA

    You cant compare Ganguly to Dhoni. Ganguly got passion, aggression into the indian team which had never been there before. He groomed and supported the players and gave them confidence. He made the indian team a self confident, self believing team.

    Dhoni is taking the team to the next level. The times are different, the players have that confidence given to them by ganguly so they are performing better. It was time for Ganguly to go, its good that he made his exit so elegantly unlike Kapil/Azhar.
    Dhoni is a very strong thinking captain who never looses his cool even in tight situations. Every series he has lead the team as caption, india has done better than ever before. You have to give this to him.

    Posted November 11, 2008 at 10:08 am

    Ganguly was a great captain of India and he served Indian cricket as its most successful captain for half a decade…. Dhoni has just completed a year of captaincy and has a loooong way to go…. He’ll face tougher challenges and how he fares then will decide the result of this debate…. However, the points given here (and those who are in favour of it) are not great admirers of Ganguly, but haters of Dhoni…. From an objective and cricketing point of view, I don’t think the arguements given here are true or fair to Dhoni…. Ganguly was a fabulous past, Dhoni is the promising future…. Ganguly himself acknowledges that he sees a bit of himself in Dhoni….

    I really could not imagine myself talking anything bad about any Indian especially when duo have represented Indian most loving game of Cricket in the world. I think both of them are extraordinary in many ways. Everybody has a good time and a bad time in one’s life but it is not a good way to compare bad time of one person with good time of others. Both of them have done fabulous decisions at times that has won them matches. Both of them have spirited their teams to score a win. Both of them have hard times somewhere. I personally didn’t like Dada but his in time decision to quit with due respect has won my regards. Now I have learned to judge person from his contribution as a team member; be by playing when needed or quitting at right time.

    I do not see any point in comparing the two captains. One of them had lead India successfully to become a strong force pulling out of a turbulent stage when Match fixing allegations were looming large in cricketing world. He has formed one of the most successful opening stands in world along with Sachin. Whereas when we see Dhoni, he came from no where and within a very short span of time, emerged as a true leader of the team. The winning habit which dada has inculcated in out team, the same spirit is being carried out by MSD and team. I will say that Indian cricket team is in safe hands now and I wish all the best to MSD to continue taking the Indian cricket to greater heights.
    I agree that it has been unfortunate with the way Sourabh Ganguly has to announce his retirement. He still had a good amount of cricket left in him, considering the batting form he was in. However, he himself admitted that considering the fact that Indian cricket team need to be built for 2011, him occupying a place in the team (specially at the mercy of the selectors) will not be worthy for Sourabh. Sourabh has been our hero and will remain so forever and MSD will carry ahead the perfect balance of agressiveness, composure and tactical attitude within the Indian Team.
    So, guys please stop comaring one of the cricketing legend with another of our hero, who is on the path to become another legendary cricketer for India.

    Hey out there you guys are crazy.Ganguly is not just a captain or a player, he is a a fighter and a “determination” personified who never bow down to odds and adversities. You can call him good or bad but you just can’t ignore his contribution to Indian Cricket. He is the first and only to look beyond the regional favorism which has produced greats like Bhajji, Zaheer, Sehwag and also Dhoni. Dhoni is very good but he must acknowledge what he has learnt from this great emperor ( saurav) of the game.And remember Ganguly himself admits that Dhoni is the most deserved candidate as his successor… which itself is a big complement for Dhoni.

    Dont jump to any kind of conclusion whatsoever,coz it is still early days for Dhoni though he is doing exceptionally good. But the most important thing to remmember is that he is still to face the turbulence of bad form of the team,and itz not easy to captain the national team of a country where criket and cricketers are worshiped.We should apreciate DADA for what he has done for the Our CRICKET.He has taken the team from all time low to almost becoming the world champs.Hats off to Dhoni that he had won us the 20/20 worldcup with a young team but plz dont take the credit awaay from DADA coz it was his wisdom that gave us run machine Virender Shewag,six hitting machine Yuvraj, Harbhajan singh, Zaheer khan, Irfan pathan(remmember his entry into the inetnational cricket,soon we started comparing him with kapil/wasim akram).The basic problem is we Indians have a very short lived memory. This is may be coz we love our cricketers like crazy,we dont wanna see them lossing.Plz stop comparing coz this would be a slap on our own face.Those who say Dhoni is a kid still admires his style of six hitting,and those who shows that they hate Dada still loves when he dances down the track and hit the ball out of the park,his shirt waving in the ‘MECCA ‘ OF CRICKET LORDS,his aggression on the feild.On his last interview with the media after nagpur test Ganguly said ‘Dhoni doesnt believe in dressing room meetings like him, which suggests that great man have lot of things in common.Before signing off i uld like to tell MR Ranchi that plz take off that ranchi Spect(CHASMA)from ur eyes which u seems to be wearing.And guys dont follow the media coz they are the ones who take our cricketers to the top and they are the ones who drag them down. WE ALL KNOW WE LOVE OUR CRICKETERS, no matter what.Aknowledge the fact that DADA was great and dhoni is on the way of becoming great.

    Of course i do agree that he performed very well…

    Comparing both the players looks like stupid? They are the greatest in their classes. Look can we compare Ganguly with Sachin or Sachin with Lara. We should understand the facts first.

    As far as their achievements are concerned both the players have their own accomplishments to substantiate the fact that they are great.

    No need for the brawls, and we must understand they both play for India and we are fortunate to have them for our country.

    Please please dont compare Dhoni with Ganguli. Ganguli is a seasoned and mature. He has the different qualities. He has changed the thinking of selectors as well as critics. He was a master player with the qualities of leading from the front.
    But Dhoni is a young boy of 7 months (imaginary) he is trying to stood on his foot. And i think his efforts are fine. Listen this is a team game. No one can achieve alone. and Dhoni is doing very well. If he will retain the captancy only 4 year (just half of the Ganguly’s tenure) you will see how friendly he is.
    Dhoni looks very practical man. He wants result. And he is getting. If he will keep the team unite. He will beat Ganguly’s achievements.
    No doubt till date Dada (Ganguli) is No. 1 captain in my eyes. But Dhoni is doing well. He looks a balance captain.
    Some one writes that he is earning money. So, please tell me who is not earning.
    So please be broadminded. you wil see one Dhoni will be most successful captain of Indian Cricket.

    Ganguly has only records with him other than that he is really one of worst player in the cricket. I dont know how many of them will accept this comment, Eventhough our bcci knows about him.
    He have 10,000 runs on his back but wat about fielding guys tell me, where you will make him to stand in the ground for fielding, So only our bcci making him to stand out the boundary rope. All of them are telling that he his great player, Really I dont know wat is means for great player, I am really fedup of his fielding anyone knows that how many catch he has dropped,I think Everyone knows about our ganguly woul chase the ball try to makes ” 1’s into 2’s “, ” 2’s into 3’s” , finally the ball the reached boundary.In the pressure situation if the bowler give four he keeps shouting on him but u know one how many catch he has dropped. In one season he played 22 match’s in that he had score only 45 runs (Wat Excellent performer India will Miss you alot ) thats true guys,
    I think it happened at the end period of his captaincy career. Our ganguly is the worst runner between wickets. How many times he makes other’s runout.
    I dont know, How you will be compare this feature of guy into other’s. Everyone is telling he is great captain ok then tell me how many cup’s we have won under his belt.
    I think atleast anyone of them will accept my comment..

    The achievements that dhoni has achieved so far are enough to show his ability as captain; T-20 WC, beating australia in australia in world series cup, beating srilanka in srilanka, won first 4 test matches as captain and yet to lose one, world no.1 ODI batsman (ganguly never reached to that spot in his entire carrier) and all this in 16 months. He has the guts to get dravid and ganguly out of the ODI team, as they were liability for the team. Hopefully by the time Dhoni will retire from international cricket, he will be amongst the world’s greatest captains leave aside india. All the best DHONI you are the best.

    Mr. Guide, Are your performances in job measured the same way? Where are the statistics to back? Otherwise, These are just statements and this being democracy anyone can make one.

    Within 4 or 5 years, Dhoni has scaled so much heights and he has shown so much potential and maturity. You are comparing him with a legend like Sourav who played for so long. That in itself is a credit to Dhoni. For now, it is definetely good for Indian Cricket.

  78. Posted March 11, 2009 at 4:48 pm

    Saurav Ganguly was a captain who developed his leadership skills over a period of time…Being aggressive doesnt necessarily make u a great captain….A captain leads by character & shud be a prime example for his teammates on & off the field…Some great captains under this category were Kumble,Steve Waugh,Inzamam & Stephen Fleming….They had the respect of their team mates as wel as the country they played for…Ganguly is someone whom the country loved to the core not because he was a great human being bt jus coz he was very flamboyant & used to wear his emotions on his sleeves…If Ganguly was hurt then India was hurt…Ppl loved him for the way he was bt I realy doubt if he ever commmanded the respect of his team mates or fellow players across the globe.He considered himself to be the Prince as rightly said!
    Meanwhile Dhoni is natural born leader who is just in the initial phase of his career…In the midst of the racial slur in Aus,Kumble emerged to be a champion captain jus coz he was upright n held his integrity…Though Dhoni isnt as talented & eloquent as Ganguly is he stil commands respect from his team mates coz of a clear mind & character…
    Ganguly was nt only one of the best off-side player the game had ever seen bt he was equally pleasing & gracious in his timing which made him stand out.
    Dhoni on the other hand is one of the hardest hitters of the cricket ball & is also a great runner between the wickets.

    Both the batsmen are completely different in their way of functioning however they are captains India has & wil be proud of for a long time…!!!

    Ganguly is a good captain in the beginning years, but when u analyse the matches you can see he will be one among the worst performer in most of the matches as captain, but captain must be like Dhoni who will perform atleast in one form, then only other will suport the captain. He is always not giving chances to Dravid, so Tendulkar also backed Dravid, problems between them also existed. Even now in Kotkata Night Rider’s team he is the worst performer, and all believe him as a great hitter now, its all over before 10 years. now he is an old papa who can sit with children and enjoy cricket.

  89. Posted March 26, 2010 at 5:45 am

    bleddy indian cricket fans ………..first give respect to old generations ,because they are the role models for each…ganguly is still the best ,his records are great……in 2000 master can’t lead the team bec of his poor performance…….at thta time dada rockzzzzzzzz…….dravid also a best cap ….master also a good cricketer………encourage new generations but don’t irritate old generations……….

    Dhoni is god ,,,ganguly his servant….

    dnt make any foolish comparisons…
    dhoni has 10-2 wi record in tests…in tests he was the only secodn cricketer to captain his country and not lose a single test..even in togh situations india under him hasnt lost 1 test series..
    as for his one day captaincy record…63% win less record..much better in indian captains history..
    plus as a player he has average og 52 in one day,,second only to great michael bevan for players who hve played more than 150 odiss…. a player his strike rate in one day is 86-87..much beter than ganglee..also his average is double..also his winning record is much plz stop the unnecesary debate..some stupid korbocheee boy starts the debate about bengal sunderban tiger dada ganguly suraj ganguly..

    there is no comparison..
    dhoni is the king…ganguly not even deserves to be minister in his cabinet..

    dhoni is man,,then gangukleee dsnt deserve to be his dust on his feet..

    so many peopel can rember that dada ran out so many partners..poor dravid was vitim on many occasions…also he was so very selfish cricketer..see his strike rate..when getting near to his 100 he wud waste so many balls…his strike rate is of 70..whch dhoni ke toh tetsts mein bhi isse jyada hai…so
    dhoni..much better human being…bakks his players…ganguly most arrogant selfish..
    as for conduct it was dhoni who in ganglee last tets offered to gve him great gesture ..only dhoni can do it..not any ganglee or his stupid fan…

    also porr conduct by ganglee on so many coccasions like removing his shirt and shwng How much fat stored on his body….and hair also ..

    so in all departments of game and life..dhoni is 10000 times better than Suraj ramdiv..ohh suraj ganguly….

    Ganguly was removed from the team at a point of time where he was the top indian scorer of year in tests…. n the bloody reason the captain n selection committee mentioned is the poor fielding of Ganguly… Fcuk the Committee and Dhoni… You’ll know his importance soon..don wry..

    sourav is a dumbest player . dhoni is much better than saurav . i have many points , dhoni won many cups , saurav zero. dhoni is a better cpt. than sourav , dhoni is the best wicket keeper and sixth best odi batsman . and perhaps more patiently the best chaser and finisher . he is a superb player he hold the indian team together . i think sourav had done nothing for indian team . all commands and statements are true .
    dhoni(2004-) vs. saurav(1992-2007)

    moreover gilchrist also amazed by seeing dhoni’s command
    dhoni had done a lot for his team but saurav only thinks about money . saurav is nothing in front of dhoni’s unique style
