Spot on, Sumanta. Ganguly changed how players were selected to play for India and the quota system more or less disappeared during his time. He backed his instincts and players bringing a toughness that Indian teams of the past lacked. While he may not have been as cerebral as Brearley, like Brearly, Ganguly made the Indian team better by being their captain. Dravid/Tendulkar are much better cricket players but not necessarily good captains -- I suspect that both of them (i.e., Tendulkar/Dravid) will agree with the second part of my statement.
