Kolkata: Sourav Ganguly Tuesday lauded Mahendra Singh Dhoni for becoming the most successful Indian Test captain, surpassing his record, and hoped that the Jharkhand wicketkeeper-batsman would be able to carry his showing in the coming foreign engagements.

"Dhoni's record is praiseworthy. Twenty-two Test wins is not a small achievement. And the success against Australia has come against the backdrop of the not-so-good times he went through in the last two years," said Ganguly.

However, he linked the stints of former captains as also that of Dhoni to a relay race where each skipper carried the baton forward.
