Nasser Hussain said that Sourav Ganguly on the field and off it are two distinct individuals, including that the former Indian captain is still late for stretches.
Former English captain Nassser Hussain opened up on his on-field contention with Sourav Ganguly. He abhorred how the former Indian commander made him stand by each and every time during the toss. It was a higher priority than a round of cricket.
“He was feisty and he picked feisty cricketers whether it would be Harbhajan or Yuvraj or whoever – feisty in your face cricketers that when you met him away from the game, were lovely, nice. Sourav”s like that,” he said.

Discussing how Ganguly consistently made him pause, he stated, “When I played against Sourav, I hated him, he used to make me wait for the toss every single time and I’ll be like, Ganguly, its 10.30, we have to toss. But now I work with him for the last decade on commentary, he’s such a nice, calm, he’s still late for his commentary stints, but he is a lovely bloke,” said Nasser.
“And that’s the way cricketers should be. When you play with him or against him, you don’t like him and when you meet up with him later in life, they’re nice people,” he added.
