A video of former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly praising the contribution of his former teammate Rahul Dravid during a felicitation ceremony arranged by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to honour the Indian legend on Tuesday.


Former captains Sourav Ganguly, Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman and current skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni were among those who spoke at the function attended by a galaxy of former cricketers, BCCI officials and other dignitaries.


While describing him as a “huge pillar”, Ganguly said Dravid, who announced his retirement from international cricket on March 9, was a great ambassador of the game.


“He was one of the huge pillar through which Indian cricket went forward. He is one of the greatest batsmen not just in India but in world cricket,” Ganguly said.
