On paper, the 2003 Indian cricket team was as strong as in the 2019 World Cup. However, both teams could not win the World Cup title. Recently, a fan asked Sourav Ganguly that which three players from the 2019 World Cup team would like to be included in the 2003 team? So Ganguly took the names of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah on this.
At that time the team under the leadership of Sourav Ganguly was Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid. In 2019, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, led by Virat Kohli, himself were in top order. Ganguly's pace department was stronger in the 2003 World Cup. Zaheer Khan, Ajit Agarkar, Javagal Srinath were in the team. While Virat Kohli had Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shami fast bowlers in the 2019 World Cup.

Sourav Ganguly had Harbhajan Singh and Anil Kumble as spinners, while Kohli had Yajuvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja. In 2003, India reached the final of the World Cup, but lost to Australia. In 2019, India reached the semi-finals of the World Cup and lost to New Zealand. But if the captains of both the teams are given the option to choose a player from each other's team, then whom will they choose?

A fan asked BCCI President Sourav Ganguly a similar question. Fan asked Sourav Ganguly that if he had to choose three players from the 2019 World Cup team, whom he would like to include in the 2003 World Cup team, then who would he be? Indian cricketer Mayank Agarwal was talking to Sourav Ganguly on the online show 'Dada Open with Mayank'. 

Answering this question, Sourav Ganguly named Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jaspreet Bumrah. He said, "Bumrah is the best bowler, we were playing the World Cup in South Africa." I would bat at number three for Rohit's opening. I don't know whether Sehwag is listening to it or not, but tomorrow I will ask him about it. But I would like to keep these three players in my team.

 Sourav Ganguly further said that if he was given another option, he would also like to choose Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He said, "But you have given me only three options, in such a situation I would like to see Rahul Dravid behind the stumps." Rahul made a significant contribution to the World Cup.
