Sourav Ganguly Honoured By Australia As They Named A Beer After Him
Sourav Ganguly is one of the most famous and loved cricketers that India has ever produced and his fans love to call him as Dada. The former Indian cricketer is also one of the most successful Indian skippers that we have had, especially in the Test matches as team India has won 21 out of 49 test matches under his leadership. He has also scored more than 11K runs in his ODI career which speaks a lot about his amazing batting style.
It won’t be incorrect to say that it was Sourav Ganguly who made the Indian team a group of fighters who didn’t mind answering back to their opponent in their own language. Australians have always been famous for sledging and it was under Ganguly’s leadership that Indian players also started giving mouthful to the Australians, making them realise that they are no more interested in remaining silent when getting sledged.
It is a common notion that Sourav Ganguly is not liked by the Australians but you will be surprised to know that they have named a beer after him which is certainly quite a good way of giving respect.
The beer which is being named as ‘Feral “Ganguly” Mango Lasi’ is listed under the ‘Smooth Hoperators’ category.
A Twitter user Bharat Sundaresan made a tweet in this regard with a photo of the menu. He wrote, “I always thought they didn’t like @SGanguly99 much here in Australia. But they instead have paid him the highest Aussie honour possible by naming a beer after him & even marking it as a smooth “hopetator” Must have been all those hugs to Ponting @cricbuzz #Ipl2019 @DelhiCapitals”.
