Blunt remark of former team India captain Saurav Ganguly on “pressure”

Where the T20 World Cup is going to start, the cricketers of team India are going to find themselves in an extreme pressure situation once again because the task of ending the long and standing ICC trophy drought is hovering over their heads. SauravGanguly, who is one of the most successful captains of Team India, feels that Rahul Dravid and his team should go for a more relaxed approach in order to succeed in the T20 World Cup.
In a chat, Ganguly feels that Team India makes the mistake of pushing way too much, which is often visible if one looks at the wives of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. 
He said, “If I can say something to Rahul Dravid, and make no mistake, he is a champion cricketer and cricket brain, it will be to relax a little. When I see the wife of Rohit in the stands, it is evidence of how much pressure she is under. When I see Virat wife, I see the kind of pressure she is feeling. We in India make this mistake of pushing too much. I think back to the 2003 World Cup final, for example. If anything we need to relax, then we are playing the big games. Just play with freedom.”
