Former Indian captain and BCCI President (Sourav Ganguly) is known for his leadership ability. Ganguly’s greatest quality is his clarity of thought. This thing has been reflected in their decisions. When he captained the team, he still knew which player to use where and when.
Recently, Team India opening batsman Mayank Agarwal asked Sourav Ganguly that which three players of the 2019 World Cup would you feed in the 2023 World Cup? Ganguly replied that he would have included Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Jaspreet Bumrah in his team.
‘Sehwag’s phone will come to hear my answer’
Sourav Ganguly, one of the successful captains of India, is running the Indian Cricket Board today. For Ganguly, it is said that he used to stand in front of the management for his players. As a captain, Dada supported the players of the team. He knew the ability of every player. And even today they know which player they can bet on.
Team India’s new Test opener Mayank Agarwal asked many questions to Sourav Ganguly. To which Ganguly replied in his style. Mayank asked which are the three players of the 2019 World Cup whom he used to feed in his team in the 2023 World Cup and why? Ganguly replied without delay that I would have given Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Jaspreet Bumrah a chance. Bumrah is brilliant in fast bowling. We played in South Africa, where our bowlers performed well in the series.
He said that he would send Rohit to number one. Put Virat in the middle order and himself comes in at number three. I do not know if Sehwag will be listening to me, then tomorrow his phone will come to me that how can you think so. But I would keep these three in my team. Although I would have also picked Dhoni if you asked me to select only three players, then I will get wicketkeeping done by Rahul Dravid.
Rohit, Virat, and Bumrah made a splash in 2019 World Cup
The great performance of this trio is the biggest reason behind Sourav Ganguly’s selection of Virat, Rohit, and Bumrah. First of all, let’s talk about Team India’s hitman Rohit Sharma, in the World Cup 2019, Rohit Sharma scored 648 runs in 9 matches. He scored five centuries, making a world record.
Also, Virat Kohli had scored 443 runs and the first Indian batsman to score 5 consecutive fifties in a World cup. At the same time, Jasprit Bumrah also bowled amazingly. Bumrah was the highest wicket-taker for India in the World Cup 2019. He took 18 wickets in 9 matches. In this, Bumrah also took four wickets in a match.
