New Delhi, July 21: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is known to have possessed the eye to judge talents at an early age and provide them ample opportunity to flourish at the big stage.

The legendary India captain did the same for rookie wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni. MS Dhoni made his debut in Bangladesh during the three-ODI series in 2004 under Ganguly.

Dhoni had caught the selectors' eyes with his growing reputation of hitting towering sixes and his prowess to dominate bowlers at the domestic level. And soon, the Ranchi cricketer's exploits also caught the attention of the then India captain who finally decided to give the big-hitting wicketkeeper-batsman a chance.

Former Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team director Joy Bhattacharya, in a chat with Gaurav Kapur in Oaktree Sports' podcast titled '22 Yarns', narrated how Dada once informed him about a 'chabuk new batsman' in the domestic circuit.

"I remember being on a flight to Bangladesh in 2004 and Sourav was just telling me 'we have this chabuk new batsman'. He said 'chabuk new batsman' who has come out. You have to see him, MS Dhoni is going to be a star,'" Bhattacharya said.
