For every enthusiastic cricket fan the debate over Captain Ganguly Vs Captain Dhoni is still a hot topic to talk about.

Both the captains are known for their different capabilities and skills and now to give this debate an additional spark,Former cricketer turned politician Gautam Gambhir who played under both the captains said that by the time Dhoni finished his captaincy stint, he has been able to give a lot too many quality cricketers to his successor Virat Kohli, unlike Ganguly, who provided the team with world-beaters, a report in Hindustan times said.

Gambhir was quoted as saying, when MS Dhoni finished [his captaincy stint], he hasn’t given enough quality players to Virat Kohli, apart from Virat Kohli himself and Rohit Sharma, or Jasprit Bumrah now. There are not too many world-beaters or probably people who win you tournaments.

But look at what Sourav Ganguly gave to Indian cricket: Yuvraj Singh, Man of the Series in two World Cups [Yuvraj was only Man of the Series in the 2011 World Cup; Shahid Afridi was Man of the Series in the 2007 World T20], Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag - these kinds of world-beaters, he added.

India won 21 in 49 Tests, won NatWest Series in 2002 and made to the final of the 2003 World Cupunder Sourav Ganguky’s captainship.

On the other hand MS Dhoni aka Captain cool is the only skipper to win the World T20, Champions Trophy and the 50-over World Cup in world cricket.

He also took Team India to the top of the ICC Test rankings in 2013.
