One day after Virender Sehwag created One-day International history in Indore, former India skipper Sourav Ganguly, who was named Bengal Ranji Trophy captain replacing Manoj Tiwary on Friday, ranked the opener among one of the all-time greats of Test cricket.

"He is one of the all-time greats in Test cricket. But I will still reserve my opinion in one-dayers. His success in limited-overs cricket is too sporadic. He is a brilliant player and it was a terrific innings. When Sehwag gets going there's no stopping him. But a player with his ability should have been more consistent. As a Test player, he has been amazing. He is part of Indian cricket's golden generation - a fabulous set of players who has taken the team to new heights," said Ganguly, who as captain got Sehwag to open for India.
