Sourav Ganguly Picks 3 Current Indian Players For His 2003 World Cup Squad
In a Twitter chat, Ganguly revealed the three players he’d have picked in his 2003 World Cup team.
Sourav Ganguly found himself in quite a quandary when he was asked to pick three Indian players from the current team whom he would have loved to have in his 2003 World Cup squad. The former Indian captain and current BCCI chief was in conversation with Mayank Agarwal when he said that he’d love to have Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah in his squad. Sourav revealed that having Virat Kohli would have strengthened the team’s middle order, and Rohit Sharma along with Tendulkar would have given them a great opening pair. Jasprit Bumrah’s fast bowling would have helped them snag dismissals on South African wickets.
One notable exclusion from his three picks was, of course, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. When quizzed about this, Ganguly said that he would have picked Dhoni if he was given a fourth choice. The 2003 World Cup side that was captained by Ganguly had reached the final of the competition but had lost at the hands of Ricky Ponting’s Australia, which was unbeaten in the entire tournament.
