Ganguly feels the current Indian team led by Dhoni can deal better with pressure situations.


New Delhi: Defending Team India's often-criticised character of crumbling under pressure, former captain Sourav Ganguly said that the current side is better adept in responding to difficult situations than before.

"In 2003, we lost to the best Australian side under Ricky Ponting. But today, the Indian team won't buckle under pressure," Ganguly said at a conclave on Saturday.

Addressing a large gathering, Ganguly remembered the loss against Australia in a one-sided final in 2003, saying it was very difficult to captain the Indian cricket team because of the expectations surrounding the sport in the country. (India-Australia Final Ideal For World Cup 2015: Ponting)
