“I have always said about Ganguly that he has made the Indian team a tough team,” said Naser Hussain on the Cricket Connected show on Star Sports Channel. Even before Ganguly became the captain, India was a very good team. But you knew then that they were a soft team, very down to earth. ‘

‘I hated Ganguly when I played against him. He was late every time he tossed. Kept me waiting I would say, Ganguly, now we have to toss at 10:30! But now I’ve worked with it together over the last decade as a commentator. He is a very good, calm person. He came late to comment, of course! ‘
