Virender Sehwag: But Dada you also had a heavier bat.

Sourav Ganguly – Yes, it used to be heavy but not like Tendulkar.


HS – Dada, was there any difference in the technique or mindset – because other legends have also played alongside him but they could not achieve what Sachin got in his career.
