Throughout the course of the cricketing history, India has remained a really hard nut to crack at home. However, same wasn’t true for the overseas games, until the men in blue adopted a different gear to change their fortunes. But who is responsible for the turn of events?
A growing debate on the aforementioned question is attracting a major chunk of the cricket pundits. Recently, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir became a part of this debate as he threw his weight behind Virat Kohli’s comments regarding former captain Sourav Ganguly being the main force behind India’s ability to win overseas, starting from year 2000.
Sharing his views, the 38-year old said that there is no doubt about the fact that Ganguly installed the belief of winning away from home and it should always be lauded. Gambhir didn’t discard the contributions of skippers like Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev, but added that Ganguly’s leadership was different, which landed the national team in a different and exciting plain of confidence.
