Dhoni backed Rohit – Sourav Ganguly

Having faced a disastrous 2012, Rohit Sharma has finally come good in 2013, after years of facing ridicule from the fans for his inconsistent and below-par performances.

Part of the credit for this fantastic turnaround must be given to MS Dhoni, ex-Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has said.

“He’s made Rohit Sharma into a player. No Indian player would have played 100 ODI games without playing a Test. He would not have got an opportunity. Now we sit back and say, how good a player Sharma is. He’s got time and ability. You got to give credit to Dhoni. In the past, players have come and gone away because of lack of opportunity and belief.

Talking about his own captaincy days, Ganguly said that he was satisfied with what he had achieved.

“As captain, you take decision and you have to face the consequences. When I sit back and see my days as captain and when I see where the Indian cricket has gone, I don’t worry about it. I’m happy that the Indian cricket has gone forward. That’s what matters. I was not there to make anyone happy or sad. I was there to do a job and make sure the Indian cricket gets forward,” he said.
