”Captaincy is a spark and it is not just preparation. It is not that you have got to be a good player and do a lot of homework”, says Saurav Ganguly after retiring from Indian Test cricket in style and grace.

“It is a spark on the field, which Dhoni has. He has got that extra bit of luck, which you require, in captaincy”, says Ganguly.

Saurav Ganguly signed off from test cricket in style on Monday by captaining a victorious India side in the latter stages of his farewell match. Ganguly, 36, who is the second person only to make a century in his first test and a duck in his last, was asked by new captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni to lead the team towards the end of their 172-run win over Australia.

India took the series 2-0 to clinch their first win over the world number one side since Ganguly captained them in 2001. I was already switched off, so he (Dhoni) woke me up, Ganguly joked.
