XtraTime Web Desk: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly praised Twenty 20 cricket tournament as he said without it, the game of cricket could not survive.

Gangully said,” Twenty20 is must for cricket. Without T20, cricket cannot survive,"According to him it was a good tour so far for the team India.

He said that India played really well in the ODI series and said,” I hope they win the match (T20) on Saturday,"

To another question on selection policy then and now, he said it was the same transparent one. "It is the best of Indian selection policy."

On curtailing the tenure of coaches abruptly, he expressed hope that it may not happen in future.

When asked about young players getting an opportunity in Indian cricket, Ganguly said a lot of young players represent the country. "We have Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya and others have come in to play in our Indian side. We have to give them time to become the likes of Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh."

"Sehwag and Harbhajan also developed over a period of time. Our young players will also do so," he said.

Referring to World Cup winning skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ganguly said "Dhoni is very good in one-day matches and in T20. It is very hard to get past MS."

He said Dhoni's contributions should be respected. "You got to respect the contributions made by him and others too will get an opportunity to shine."

On the fitness of Indian cricketers, Ganguly said the Indian team is on par with international players.

Asked to compare Indian men and women cricket teams, he said "men are far better."

"Women are doing exceptionally well in cricket. Have you seen anyone hit bigger sixes than Harmanpreet Kaur? However, the men are better," he quipped.
