Sehwag feels Dhoni may surpass 'Dada'

New Delhi: Lauding MS Dhoni's captaincy skills, Virendar Sehwag said that Indian captain has the potential to even surpass Sourav Ganguly and become the most successful captain.

''He may prove to be a better captain than Ganguly,'' Sehwag told India News in an interview.

He expressed his grief at the retirement of Sourav Ganguly and Anil Kumble, saying that the two veteran players were missed in the dressing room.

Sehwag was in fine form during 2008, a year which saw India succesfully challenge Australia's supremacy in world cricket.

The lad from Najafgarh blasted his way to the fastest triple century in the history of Test cricket when he notched up 300 off just 278 balls against South Africa at Chennai in April last year.

In early 2004, he became the only Indian to score a triple century in Test cricket, 309 against Pakistan in the first Test in Multan.

''2008 has been best of my cricket career,'' the Team India vice-captain asserted, adding, ''Every batsmen have been excellent in 2008.'' Remembering his both triple centuries, the 30-year-old opener said, ''Certainly, Chennai is important for me than Multan in this context.

''Me and Gambhir have a really good understanding in the field,'' he added.
