If we look out the list of the former cricketers that India had over the years, we come across Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly remain in the same bracket. The duo got a similar aggression on the field and have always been precise in their planning for the International match. Now, the duo set to work together to lead the Indian team to greater heights.
After taking charge as BCCI President here on Wednesday, Ganguly had called Kohli the most important man in Indian cricket. And also, he said that he was there to make life easier for the skipper, not difficult. When asked about the understanding between the duo, Ganguly quoted that it won’t be difficult at all for him to partner with the skipper.

Speaking of his new role, Sourav Ganguly added that he enjoys the challenges and would like to win it without fail. Further, the former Indian skipper revealed that he has an enormous belief in himself, which made him stay where he is at present.Sourav Ganguly (Credit: Twitter)
“I have an enormous belief in myself. You give me something and if it needs to be turned around, I think I will. And that nobody became a good cricketer sitting in the dressing room. You will only be respected if you take a difficult challenge head-on. Give me responsibility and I will give it my best shot. Leave me alone and I might fall asleep.”
Ganguly had played 113 Tests and 311 one-day internationals. He helped India emerge from a damaging match-fixing scandal in 2000 and led the side to 21 test wins. All those efforts had certainly increased the level of expectations on him.
