At present scenario I personally feel that Dravid is far better choice that Ganguly to captain India against Sri Lanka and South Africa home series coming October and November. Before comparing statistics of Dravid & Ganguly, we should take care of one thing that Ganguly was permanent captain for last few years while Dravid took the charges when Ganguly was out of team for some reason or other. We can not compare two captains simply because Ganguly leaded India in 146 while Dravid took the charge for 17 matches only. I know on statistics Ganguly is best captain for India. But that was past. Let's think of something for the present Indian cricket condition and take India into prosperous future. At present Dravid is in far better form than Ganguly. If Ganguly wants a place in India team as captain or as player he has to show good form in our domestic cricket. Let's give Dravid a chance with cool mind and with long term perspective not to win few series. It might possible that India will play best of its cricket in entire series but lose the crucial final game. This is very important for evaluation point of view that only result should not be the criteria for judging captainship. If it is then Ganguly should have left the Job few years back. As India lost 19 finals out of 20 finals played in last few years. My sincere request to all form of communication be it print, electronic or mass media please don't make Indian cricket your dirty gossip items. Leave Indian cricket in respective form. And discuss only critical and enjoyable issue. Not the issues like Dravid vs. Ganguly. I wish good luck to Indian cricketers including Greg Chappell and hope Indian cricket will again reach a new heights. happy mylot day.
