Former skipper Sourav Ganguly has revealed that there were “too many gentlemen” in the team when he captained India and joked that”s why his side struggled with mental battles against tough opponents such as Australia.
Speaking during the rain interruption in India”s World Cup semifinal clash against New Zealand at the Old Trafford, Ganguly said: “It was very hard with that team, because we had too many gentlemen. If you ask Rahul Dravid to do that, he”ll come back and say ”No no no that”s not the right way to play.”
“You ask V.V.S. Laxman to do that, he”ll say ”I”m concentrating on my batting.” And if you tell Sachin to do it, he will stand at mid-on and tell the mid-wicket fielder to sledge Steve Waugh, and himself not do it,” Ganguly revealed with Laxman laughing alongside him.
