New Delhi: Former Indian legend Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday praised current India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni saying that the amount of respect he gets from the dressing room is unbelievable.
Dhoni has been criticised for India's 1-4 loss to Australia in the recently concluded ODI series and Ganguly was quick to point the amount of respect he gets.
“We only look at the criticism but amount of respect he gets in India is unbelievable," Ganguly said in an event organised by NDTV.
The former India skipper went on to add that Dhoni has a fantastic ability to remain calm under any situation.
"MS has this fantastic ability to remain calm under any situation. Lot of people have asked me that "you have been with him, so how does he remain calm? I tell them that he doesn't show it. From inside he is different, from outside he is different. That goes around in the dressing room and he gets a lot of respect."
Ganguly is currently the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal.
