Former Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly is known for the changes in Indian cricket and Mahendra Singh Dhoni is known for the success of Team India who won ICC T20 World Cup 2007, ICC World Cup 2011 and ICC Champions Trophy for India.


After Dhoni, Virat Kohli is having the responsibility of team India. So there are many players who have played under the captaincy of both Dhoni and Kohli. When Team India’s fast bowler Umesh Yadav was asked whose captaincy is better in both, he gave a brilliant answer.
