Ganguly was respected and liked by his teammates at the same time and he can be said to be one of the most aggressive skippers produced by India in the cricketing history.
Be it clinching Ashes series in England or defeating Aussies in their home ground he was the man who made his team believe they can win anywhere in the world.
He was the one who imparted the aggressive approach along with the skills to perform under pressure in the foreign conditions.
Likes of Sehwag, Yuvraj, Kaif kept praising the stupendous efforts that their skipper used to put in and back them when they needed it the most.
Thrilling performances abroad made him get all the praise that he would have hoped for. He entered many controversies and moved out of them with ease.
