Mumbai: Leading a cricket team is no different from running a family where the members would end up playing for themselves if the captain loses their faith, feels former India skipper Sourav Ganguly.

"As a leader, if you want a good team, you have to be transparent with your players. The biggest quality of the leader is to get the trust of his players," Ganguly said at the 'FedEx Master of Deliveries' event where he discussed leadership with Australian great Adam Gilchrist in Mumbai on Tuesday night.

"We are in an environment where we drop people and as soon as you are left out, as a player you have so many questions on your mind. It is easier to drop a person but you have to speak to him. This is where you stand, this is where we feel you can go but we want you back in the squad and he goes back happy," he explained.
