Kolkata:Cricketing legend Steve Waugh today lavishly praised Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly, saying he has changed the perception of India being the traditional whipping horse in away matches.

''Ganguly has done a wonderful job as skipper. He has been at the helm for the last four-five years during which India have done really well,'' Waugh told newspersons on a visit to 'Udayan', a home for children of leprosy sufferers here.

''Earlier, India did not do well abroad. But this has changed under Sourav's captaincy,'' he said.

Waugh said that he was keen on investing in Kolkata, as he wanted the all-round development of the metropolis. ''If Kolkata develops, the lives of the orphans living in Kolkata will also improve''.

''But not only Kolkata, I want development of all the metros in the country,'' he said.

Waugh said that he had no plans to set up any sports academy in Kolkata.
