Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the best captain that India ever had, Ranjib Biswal

“Small town guys are making a stronger impact in Indian cricket,” says the manager of Indian team Ranjib Biswal, who had served Team India for quite a long time. He has been the part of some of India’s most memorable triumphs and has seen that how the small-town lads had done great deal of work to make their presence felt at the highest level. Biswal was the team's manager during the 2011 World Cup, the 2012 Asia Cup and the recently concluded Champions trophy.

Biswal was quoted by Times of India saying, "Those who stay in metros are overconfident. I appreciate the boys from small town; they don't have fear in them. They are there to prove something but the boys from metros get laidback. See the performance of Umesh Yadav, (Ravindra) Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar Kumar; they are all from small towns which prove that cricket is not a game of metros only.”

Biswal reckons that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the best captain that India ever had and he applauds him for giving so much chance to these youngsters who are now proving him right by performing so well.

He was quoted by Indian Express saying, "He (Dhoni) remains calm and expressionless while on field and gives youngsters a chance by encouraging them, boosting their confidence. Outside the field, he has his share of jokes and fun and that is what makes him the best Indian captain ever. He is the lucky mascot for the Indian cricket.”

Biswal doesn’t believe that chopping and changing is good for this young team and has a faith that they will improve as they will gain the experience. "They will win matches, they will lose matches but that doesn't mean that once they lose a match you replace them. These boys should play for at least a year and half if we are to prepare for the 2015 world cup," said Biswal.

On comeback of senior cricketers and DRS, he gave the much expected answers.

He was quoted by DNA saying, "Cricket is a game of uncertainties and players like Yuvraj and Sehwag have vast experience. You cannot deny them their chance of making comeback but as of now this team is performing very well".

On DRS, Biswal said, "The technology is not fool-proof, and there are valid concerns regarding its use. Also, this technology would cost USD 15,000 to 20,000 per day which the channels with television rights are not willing to spend," he said.
