Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has revealed one thing about former Team India skipper Sourav Ganguly that left the entire team unimpressed with the captain. Skipper Sourav Ganguly has been revered as one of the greatest players to captain the Men in Blue and impressed everyone with his aggressive approach which was new for the team back then. During an Instagram live session recently, the former all-rounder revealed that it was Dada's dressing style that left everyone in the team unimpressed back then.

'Please, you are the Indian captain'

“We were not impressed with Dada (Sourav Ganguly) at all. He was the India captain, such a big name. So I was like, Dada please, you are Indian captain, you can not dress up like that," said Yuvraj Singh during the Instagram live session. The 2011 World Cup Man of the Tournament also recollected the skipper's response. Ganguly had simply responded by asking, "How does it even matter?"
