Ganguly, Dhoni not named as 3 current players including Kohli in 2003 World Cup

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Sourav Ganguly, gave an interview to Team India opener Mayank Agarwal on Sunday, July 5. In it, he said that he wanted to keep three players of Team India who went to World Cup last year in the 2003 World Cup squad. Ganguly said that it was important to play the World Cup final at that time. Playing against Australia was a big deal. That experience was also fantastic. Team India lost to Australia in the final.

During a live chat, a user tweeted and asked Ganguly that if he wants to include 3 players from the 2019 World Cup team in the 2003 World Cup team, then who will? On this, Dada took the names of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jaspreet Bumrah. Ganguly first took the name of Virat Kohli, then Rohit Sharma. He then named Jasprit Bumrah as the fast bowler. Dada feels that Bumrah would have done well on the South African pitches.

Rohit scored 5 centuries in the World Cup last year. He was the number one batsman with 648 runs scored. Ganguly said, “Rohit would bat at the top order. I would play at number three. I don't know what Sehwag will do after hearing this. Maybe by tomorrow morning his call will come. He will say what you were thinking. But I wanted all three of them in my team. “On choosing Dhoni, Ganguly said,” If I had been given an extra option, I would have chosen Dhoni too. I will work with Rahul Dravid. He did an excellent job behind the wicket in the 2003 World Cup. “

During the chat, another user asked if Dada (Sourav Ganguly) would have liked to see himself as a T20 cricketer if he were born in today's time or would like to be an ODI and Test cricketer. To this, Ganguly said, “T20 format is very important and if I were born today, I would have prepared myself for T20 cricketer.” Ganguly would never play T20 for Team India Get He has scored 1726 runs at an average of 25.01 in 77 matches in other T20s including IPL.
