BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, who was renowned for his fearless captaincy, played with some of India’s greats. Along with Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman, Ganguly was a part of the world-famous batting line-up. When Sourav was asked about the biggest match-winner of his generation, he took the name of Virender Sehwag.

“Sehwag was the biggest match-winner in that generation as an opener,” Sourav Ganguly told India Today.

Sourav was the one who brought Sehwag out of his comfort zone.

“I had my own belief. I told him to listen ‘Nobody comes with a batting position. It’s how you adjust’. The best players are made when they come out of their comfort zone,” Ganguly added.

“If I had batted at No. 4 or No. 5 in one-day cricket, I would have been half the player. The same with Sachin, he would have scored half the runs he scored if he had batted in the middle. I said ‘just get out of this comfort zone and go and play,” he said.
