Ganguly best-ever Indian captain: Sehwag

New Delhi: Delhi dasher Virender Sehwag is not eyeing the role of captain and suggested that a new face should be given the responsibility of vice-captaincy so that he can be groomed to take the reins after skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

"I don't want to be a captain, I have already told selectors about it. I have said that a new player should be made vice-captain and be groomed to be a captain," Sehwag said.

"I want that I should continue to score runs and keep winning matches for the team," he added.

Sehwag said he would regain his fitness completely before the Champions League which starts from October 10.

Sehwag, who has played under many skippers in his career, considers former skipper Saurav Ganguly as the best ever captain for Team India.

"Saurav Ganguly has been the best ever captain India ever had," he said.

"Saurav took over as captain of the India cricket team when it was going through a very bad patch. Indian team was struggling to put come out of the match fixing scandal. He had a responsibility to put together a new team and he did a splendid job," Sehwag told a news channel.
