Former India captain and current Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly said he would have loved to change his game as per T20 requirements had he played the game in today's era.

Ganguly, who didn't play a single T20I for Team India but featured in 59 IPL matches, stated T20 cricket is very important in today's time and he would have liked to add the skill of playing in the shortest format into his armoury.

During an online interaction with current Test opener Mayank Agarwal, Ganguly was asked by a fan on Twitter: "#DadaOpensWithMayank Dada if you were born in this era would you have reinvented yourself as a T20 power player with your all-round skills or would you have stuck to playing ODIs and Test cricket?"

"No, T20 is very important. I would have changed my game...I would have loved to... Although I did play first five years of the IPL," Ganguly told Agarwal in the video uploaded on BCCI's Twitter handle.

"It, you know, (gives you) the license to keep swinging and keep hitting. So I think I would have enjoyed T20," he added.

Ganguly also spoke about the 2002 Natwest Trophy final against England at the iconic Lord's. The former skipper stated players got a bit carried away after the victory and rightly so after such a pulsating encounter.

Following the win, Ganguly had waived his T-shirt at the Lord's balcony following -- an image which is still fresh in the mind of every cricket fan in the country.

"It was a great moment. We all got carried away, but that's what sport is. When you win a game like that, you celebrate even more. That was one of the great cricket matches I have been part of," Ganguly said.
