As a captain of the Indian cricket team. At the end of the day people remembered him for his revolutionary success. which created a lot of confidence in the team. He injected a motto to win in his team. Everybody has a shelf life . but Ganguly had gone as far as he could as Indian captain. success and failure came to his career as the law of life. Do you agree with experts that all leaders have a shelf life ? Everybody will have a different shelf life. . Who can forget the name of Cheguevera and our beloved Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose who may have failed in achieving their ultimate goal but surely had left a message which touches everybody s heart. We have seen many leaders who failed in some of their objectives but still world has never forgotten them. I really admire him. I am very impressed with the way he approaches life. Because Whatever they have tried it was not only true but for the sake of a nation or people they have done beyond their limit. He wasn't going to be able to add anything more as Indian captain to the team.According to me. Most of the times I have gone on instinct. Ganguly wanted to continue with the job. In doing so sometime they failed and sometime they succeeded. At that point of time he was unable to contribute and he had one of the most dubious form of his life. he always tried to upgrade the team s performance in the home grounds as well as in foreign soils. He is the person who has to make the decision and if that decision does not work out then he is the person who have to take the responsibility. Ganguly failed due to certain situations which he could not handle. who has to lead from front and have to confront any tough situation to protect others. He taught the fellow cricketers to look directly at the opponent s eye. There are many such examples in history which shows a leadership does mean the leader have to win in the entire situation. so also a leader has his own shelf life. and as selector he would have been asked to step down much before when he actually did as the dynamic nature of the game which changes in a blink of an eye.When his captaincy was criticized. So a change was necessary to provide a change in the team s build up. Ø Nobody is a born captain. not for his failure. Also team was not playing up to the mark and all added upto his problems. A good leader always knows the best time when he/she has to step down. But the legacy which Ganguly has given to Indian cricket was phenomenal. His shelf life was on the basis of his usefulness to the Indian team. . The same logic can be applied about Ganguly s leadership.
