NDTV exclusive with Rahul Dravid

NEW DELHI: In a candid interview with NDTV 24X7, Rahul Dravid, captain of the Indian cricket team, speaks to Dr Prannoy Roy about Saurav Ganguly's grand come-back and how, in his opinion, Ganguly was the 'best captain' for the Indian cricket team. He also talks about his best World Cup team - Australia - and a lot more.

Watch Rahul Dravid speak to Dr Prannoy Roy in a free-wheeling conversation on 'India Questions', on Sunday, March 11 , 2007, at 7.00 pm.

Asked who he thinks has been the best captain of the Indian cricket team, Rahul Dravid maintained, "Yes, he (Saurav Ganguly) was, if you look at the numbers that were produced during the past five years and the games we played during his captaincy. In that sense he was the best captain and we had the best team....

"We are happy that he's come back and that he is playing well...At the end of the day the team wants players who are playing well and performing well," he adds.

When asked what his contribution to Sourav's come-back has been, Dravid was categoric, "The credit for going through it and coming out of it goes to him...he's worked hard?he's leaner, meaner and fitter...he's playing well. He's been fielding well...and we hope he can repeat that performance in the World Cup..."

On Australia, Rahul Dravid says, "I think there will be eight teams that will be looking to be in that final...I think Australia will start as favourites but not by much...that gap is closing....It's going to be a tough World Cup..."

Dravid is confident that India will win the World Cup this time and that India's performance in the recent matches bears ample testimony to this fact.
