Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly who celebrated his 41st birthday yesterday spoke highly of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, picking the current captain to lead an all-time great Indian one-day side.

Speaking to reporters at his residence, Ganguly said: “Dhoni has a phenomenal record. If I were to pick a side, he would definitely captain an all-time great Indian XI because of his batting ability as a wicketkeeper.

“I’ve not seen any wicketkeeper with the batting prowess of Dhoni. I may give it a thought for a Test side, but Dhoni is an obvious choice for one-dayers.” Ganguly, however, clarified that he would not figure in the XI as he was picking the side.
