Ganguly Wished Dhoni To Attend 2004 Tour Of Pakistan

Sourav Ganguli the India skipper was keen to send Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the tour of Pakistan in 2004 on the national team. The smashing cricketer missed the bus by the skin of his teeth disclosed to IANS by the Indian coach.

Parthiv Patel was selected for the three-Test series and was the first to play opposite India after 15 years. Moreover, Rahul Dravid has taken the five One-day Internationals.

“Dhoni is about to trip with us to Pakistan. Saurav was very keen to want him in the gang. He was at the dividing line and it was from those verdicts that could have gone either way. On the flip side, we have made a successful Test team and couldn’t make it.” India won the three-Test series and the five ODI series 3-2. In an interview, Wright stated to IANS to pay the wealthy accolade to Dhoni.

It was the time when Dhoni has to begin talks at the national level. Ganguli used to say nice words about him and encourage youngsters to come into the grounds. However, we never know when things start to change and worked out. It is the time when I started to listen about his first time, remembered by Wright, who had a five-year skimp on as the first overseas coach of India.

Dhoni made India in 200 of the 350 ODIs he played, for 55 % victory. In the International of T20, he commanded the state in 72 of the 98 tournaments for 58.33 % victory. He was a captain in 60 Tests and lasted up with a 45% victory.

The amazing former batsman and wicket-keeper from international cricket last month after a huge victory 14-year international career. However, he continues to captain CSK in IPL though.
