In any case, its too soon to discard Ganguly completely and praise Dravid to the skies. But for now, it certainly looks like a new beginning for Indian cricket with an optimistic future.
SL is struggling and India under Dravid seems to be on a roll. Greg Chappell’s overall strategy seems to be producing results. I have been a Ganguly admirer over the years, but I must admit that getting rid of Ganguly certainly seems to have opened the flood gates of India’s talent pool. Rahul Dravid’s consistency and his lack of rigidness when it comes to the batting order seems to have played a big part in this revival of Indian cricket. Ganguly’s insistence on batting at number three pretty much everytime coupled with his poor form seems to have been the bottleneck.
