Cramped schedule: Ganguly backs Kohli

Sourav Ganguly and Greg Chappell had a tumultuous relationship in the Indian cricket team

"So as a captain, as a leader I had to get that atmosphere going on the ground and it had to start from me", Ganguly said.

Hundred 100s may still be a bit far away, but scoring 50 in nine years is phenomenal.

Ganguly, one of India's most successful Test captains, was sacked from his leadership role in October 2005 and later eased out of both the Test and one-day squads following a row with coach Chappell. "It's a terrific feeling to have seen Sachin and now you are seeing this boy", Ganguly added. "As an athlete, as a cricketer, all you could do was score runs".

Ganguly praised Kohli's prolific batting, but refused to place alongside Sachin Tendulkar's achievements.

USA congratulates Bhandari on ICJ re-election
Speaking to the media, Sharma said, "We are happy that India's candidate Justice Dalveer Bhandari has finally managed to get a second term to ICJ".

"The first thing I saw when India played Australia in 2001, it was a different side when they were up and ready, they were fighting". "It's not right to compare because these are two cricketers who are from two different generations". He's a lot more expressive and proactive as captain than Sachin. Earlier in the day, Kohli, while addressing a media conference, said that the team has not been provided with sufficient time for preparation of matches and blamed the management's poor planning for it. I think he'll get close to Sachin's ODI centuries (49). But he said that is what he wants to show. Do not forget the name on the honour's board (for his hundred on Test debut at Lord's).

Soon after Zaheer Khan and Kaif completed the winning runs, Ganguly flummoxed everyone by taking his shirt off and waving the blue jersey in euphoric celebration at the Lord's balcony. However, Ganguly, now a cricket administrator, said he would never do something similar again. The Indian captain's shirtless episode remains one of the most unforgettable moments in the history of ODI cricket. He takes control but in a nice, subtle way.
