New Delhi, Nov 11 (UNI) Sourav Ganguly may have been India's most successful captain but feels that he was completely 'misunderstood'.

Ganguly quit the international cricket yesterday with a highly impressive record behind him that puts him among the elite batsmen, who averaged 40 plus in both Tests and one-dayers.

''Of course, I was. I have been completely misunderstood.

My role on the field was taken of as the same credit as off the field. Whereas, off-the field I am a completely different person,'' Ganguly said.

The 'Prince of Kolkata' defended everything he did on field by saying the sole purpose of his actions was to make India a top cricketing force in world cricket, in which he believes he succeeded.

''For me getting Indian cricket on the world map was the most important thing. I felt it was my responsibility to do it and I could see a team with me who could do it,'' Ganguly told NDTV.

''So, I had to do everything which would make India a proud cricketing nation and that's what happened,'' he added.
