“MS Dhoni’s achievement has made India proud. When you sit down and take note of what he has done, you say ‘Wow. Champions don’t finish very quickly. Till I am around, everybody will be respected," assured Ganguly.  While speaking about Virat Kohli he said that he is yet to speak to the Indian cricket captain and will surely render his support in the best possible way. "I will speak to him (Virat Kohli) tomorrow. He is the captain of India. He is the most important man in Indian cricket. We will support him in every possible way," he further explained.

Ganguly was also asked about the recent controversy during the Vijay Hazare trophy where Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh demanded an extra day as the match was marred by rains. Ganguly responded to the same and said that the disqualification of Punjab was done on the basis of the rule which says whichever team wins the maximum number of matches makes way into the semis.
