There was one thing common in Ganguly-Dhoni’s captaincy: Ashish Nehra

Former India fast bowler Ashish Nehra believes that the leadership style of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sourav Ganguly was completely different, but the two had one thing in common. Both players knew how to get their best out. Sourav was the captain when Ashish Nehra joined the team in the 2000s. Although he performed brilliantly, he lacked consistency.

Nehra then played under Dhoni’s leadership and then in 2017 under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. He did well under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy for the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. Recently, this 41-year-old fast bowler talked about the style of the captaincy of Dhoni and Ganguly and these two.

Ashish Nehra said, “Dhoni and Ganguly were very different captains, but both knew how to perform better than the players. The team was new when Ganguly took over the captaincy, but when Dhoni took over the captaincy, he had to manage senior players as well. “He said,” When Ganguly took over the captaincy, the Indian team was engulfed in match-fixing controversies. At that time India visited Australia in 2001.

Nehra said that on the other hand, Mahendra Sim Dhoni took over the captaincy when India was eliminated in the first leg in the 2007 World Cup. Nehra said, “Ganguly used to support young players. Whereas Dhoni had to deal with senior players.

He said, “Ganguly had young players who had to be taken forward and improve. Ganguly carried out this task well. When India defeated Australia in 2001, it was proved that Ganguly can perform and do better even under all adverse circumstances.

Ashish Nehra said, “Dhoni is an inspirational and calculative captain. He gives more opportunities to other players. He should be praised for the way he handled Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and VVS Laxman. After taking over the captaincy, he took himself and the team far ahead.
